If Margaret Thatcher and Queen Elizabeth II were pitted against each other in a boxing match, who do you think would win? Or is it too hard to picture these primp and proper women in a physical fight? In which case, Handbagged may be one way to envision how two of the most powerful women in the world duke it out at the Round House Theatre. Behind closed palace doors, this comedy gives you a little idea of who'd have the upper hand if the gloves came off and the stiff upper lip softened. Don't miss the American premiere of this Olivier Award-winning UK play in Bethesda.

"...The technical aspects of the show are also outstanding. The audience is greeted with a stark white stage, crisscrossed with white beams (Scenic and Costume Design by Richard Kent.) This affecting stage becomes even more dynamic with the clever use of lighting to transform the blank white slate into much more (Lighting Design by Jesse Belsky.) Again, Rubasingham has crafted a seamless and highly entertaining show that both informs and delights."
