“You have no enemies you say? If you have none
Then small is the work that you have done.”

Margaret Thatcher is in her 80s. At times she is her old self – sharp, lucid, clear. At other times she’s confused, frightened and frustrated. She talks to an imagined Denis, to herself, to the audience as past demons, guilts and successes – the Irish, the miners, her children, the public, her male cabinet – return to torment, flatter and deceive.

Margaret is a new play by Donegal playwright Shaun Byrne – writer/director of last year’s highly successful Bloody Sunday themed An Incident with Dave Cotter.
