"Handbagged" is a funny, thought-provoking history play, pitting two formidable opponents against each other and their younger selves. It explores the unreliability of memory and the shifting sands of history in one satisfying package.

First time at Roundhouse. A very nice venue and a good play! A bit of trouble with the accents at first, but we got used to it!

These actresses were mesmerizing. While occasionally tickling the edges of caricature in the first act, they embodied Thatcher & QE2 to such a degree that by the second act you could hear a pin drop in the theatre; the audience seemed hesitant to...continued
