Thatcher-Rite

Fri 8th Mar

You are invited to Mrs. Thatcher’s very own traditional English tea party.

With lip-sync, clown and verbatim theatre you are encouraged to bring your anger or admiration in the comforts of cake and cucumber sandwiches.

Created and 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
Costume Design by Corinna Francavilla
Produced by Mia Young
Marketing by Chama Aimbale-Kapumpa

    This performance contains flashing lights and loud noises.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Made with the support from artsdepot, Raze Collective, Something To Aim For and HighRise Theatre.

I was overcome with conflicting emotions for about an hour as I considered the absurdity of political performativity... The performance combined multimedia with the public’s involvement in an exceptionally clever way.

A perfect way to start a conversation and to reflect on what you stand for and what kind of community you would like to be part of.
