Look at us, Margaret - the press is on our side. We're heroes: the public is behind us, we're protecting our children, the party is united behind the cause. You can stand against it if you want, but you will stand alone.

Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female Prime Minister, gets lost around the streets of Soho on the eve of the vote for Section 28. Unwittingly, she finds herself quickly becoming a cabaret sensation within London's gay community.

This camp political drag cabaret explores, through songs and laughter, homophobia and censorship, and how one person could have made a difference.

Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho received its world premiere at London's Theatre503 in June 2013 as part of the Thatcherwrite Festival, and was revived in a full production there in December 2013. This second edition is published to coincide with its transfer to the Leicester Square Theatre and Norwich Playhouse in March 2015, and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2015.
