by Moira Buffini
When Maggie met the Queen
Tea at four
Handbags at dawn
Two icons, one destined to rule, the other to lead. But when the gloves came off, who had the upper hand? Moira Buffini’s sensational comedy looks behind the closed doors of the palace to speculate what really happened when two of the most powerful women in the world clashed.
This funny, insightful and brilliantly sharp satire was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015 and went on to be a West End smash hit.
Running time: 2hr 25min (inc. 20 min interval)
