The true story of how Mrs Thatcher, once the most powerful woman in the world, was brought down by Geoffrey Howe, her one time friend and political soul mate, with one of the greatest speeches ever made.

Howe, whose speaking skills saw him famously compared to a Dead Sheep, was inspired by his wife Elspeth, whose relationship with Mrs Thatcher was notoriously frosty.

Margaret, Geoffrey and Elspeth: a tale of love, honour, loyalty – and revenge.

Starring Steve Nallon as Margaret Thatcher, Graham Seed (aka Nigel Pargetter ‘The Archers’) as Ian Gow and Paul Bradley (Holby City and EastEnders) as Geoffrey Howe. Please note that John Wark’s parts will be played by Rory Murphy on the Friday and Saturday performances.
