Thursday 20th October – Handbagged at the Kiln Theatre

Fifteen of us had a very enjoyable outing to see the revival of Handbagged, a play about the relationship between HM the Queen and her Prime Minister during the 1980s, Mrs. Thatcher. For some of us, the play allowed us to remember key moments of the 1980s, for others it was a slice of history, which they are too young to remember. The six actors were all very good, the accents for the two main characters were spot on as were their costumes. The play was of course topical, some of us had a good laugh when Mrs. Thatcher said that she was not a quitter, on the very day that another PM had just done so!
