Nominated for a number of accolades including Best Play in the 2014 UK Studio Theatre Awards, Meet the Real Maggie Thatcher provides a frank, powerful and engaging insight into one of the most notorious political leaders whose policies divided a nation. Original and often gritty portrayals feature the moving tale of a striking Miner as well as Poll Tax, Clause 28 and the Falklands War.
