Moira Buffini's critically acclaimed play HANDBAGGED will transfer to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre this spring. Previews begin 3 April running until 2 August 2014, with opening night 10 April.
This will be the Tricycle Theatre's first West End transfer under the tenure of Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham.
Rubasingham said, "It's thrilling to be transferring Moira Buffini's wonderful new play to the Vaudeville Theatre after our sold out run at the Tricycle. Having nurtured it since 2010, this is a fantastic opportunity to continue the Tricycle's long tradition of bringing new work to the widest possible audience."
Based on Buffini's short play Women, Power & Politics, HANDBAGGED dramatises the relationship between the Queen and late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Marion Bailey, Stella Gonet, Fenella Woolgar, Neet Mohan and Jeff Rawle will all reprise their original roles, with the addition of Lucy Robinson.
Featuring designs by Richard Kent, lighting by Oliver Fenwick, and sound by Carolyn Downing, HANDBAGGED is presented by Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Tricycle London Productions. The show will follow The Duck House, which finishes its run at the Vaudeville on 29 March.
