"Maggie" Thatcher (Clare Bloomer) and "Ted" Heath (Martin Jarvis) strolled through Westminster earlier this week ahead of their appearance in Michael McManus's smash hit radio theatre play "Maggie & Ted". The play will run at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford next week, from 12th - 16th October following a sell-out premiere at the Garrick Theatre in London earlier this year.

The great Martin Jarvis is widely celebrated both for his stagecraft and also for his numerous radio and audio performances, including his legendary readings of the Just William books. "Maggie" will be played by Clare Bloomer, who has been described by Gyles Brandreth as "quite the best Margaret Thatcher I've seen".

ABOUT MAGGIE & TED

Staged as a radio theatre play, the comedy-drama follows "Ted" Heath and his hilarious and relentless feud with his successor, Margaret Thatcher. For over 20 years Margaret Thatcher and Edward Heath enthralled and appalled the British public with their profound political disagreements, reinforced by their intense personal dislike for one another. Now Maggie and Ted are back! "Mr. Europe" and the "Boadicea of Brexit" rollick their way onto the Surrey stage! Expect plenty of hand-bagging as these two titans of British politics reignite their long-running bitter feud. Written by Michael McManus who knew and worked with both protagonists.
