The Chelsea Theatre, London, SW10 0DR
Part of the 18 Shows Programme Presented by The Chelsea Theatre.
Thatcher-Rite is an interactive performance looking at the personal and political legacy of Margaret Thatcher.
The audience are invited to Mrs. Thatcher’s very own traditional English tea party. With lip-sync, clown, and verbatim theatre, the audience are encouraged to bring their anger or admiration in the comforts of cake and cucumber sandwiches.
Performed by Jack Boal, who grew up in Thatcher's former constituency, Thatcher-Rite puts the personal and political side by side. Her mark on the cultural, social, and political notions of Englishness begs the question, “Has Mrs. Thatcher truly left us?”
Created and Performed by Jack Boal
Directed by Lila Robirosa
