Maggie returns in her smash-hit drag extravaganza!

Following four sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and London seasons, the Iron Lady is back and more fabulous than ever.

On the eve of the vote on Section 28, Maggie gets lost in Soho and accidentally becomes a cabaret superstar. Will she change her mind about the homophobic bill before it’s too late…?

A big gay odyssey about LGBT+ rights, the 80s and disco created by Olivier Award winner Jon Brittain and Matt Tedford.
