The Lady's Not For Walking Like An Egyptian
What do you get if you cross all of the words of Margaret Thatcher’s public speeches with all of the words of every top ten hit by a female artist from the '80s?
Drag out your Lycra, your legwarmers and your Greenham Common Songbook. This is the 1980s like you’ve never seen them before. Or...exactly like you saw them before.
In 2014 Mars.tarrab made a show about Margaret Thatcher. Then she died and they thought that would be the end of it. In 2015 the UK is back under a Consverative government and the show is as relevant as ever.
An anarchic, funny and searing romp of a show that desperately tries to understand pop culture, politics, the power of love and what the '80s ever did for us.
