Round House is thrilled to present the American premiere of this Olivier Award-winning, West End hit comedy! The Iron Lady. The Queen. Born six months apart, each woman had a destiny that would change the world. But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand? Helmed by Indhu Rubasingham, Artistic Director of the original Tricycle Theatre and West End productions in London, Handbagged is the wickedly funny new comedy that imagines what the world’s most powerful women talk about behind closed palace doors.

Presented by Round House Theatre
