ALTRINCHAM Garrick Playhouse is presenting Handbagged, Moira Buffini’s play examining the relationship between Margaret Thatcher and Queen Elizabeth II.

Both were born in the same year, one destined to rule and the other elected to lead. When the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, who had the upper hand?
