Margaret Thatcher Queen of Game Shows Ed2016

Ding dong the witch is back, and this time the Iron Lady is going for gold as she makes the audience battle it out for their benefits. With the promise of games, prizes and catchphrases, expect challenges including reorganisation of the NHS, Euro-zone assault course and a second referendum bonus round, plus booby prizes from the Wheel Of Misfortune. Bursting with political satire, this comedy musical extravaganza features cameos from the likes of Nigel Farage, Nicola Sturgeon and Owen Jones, who have come to persuade Maggie to change her ways, ‘Christmas Carol’-style. The jokes come thick and fast, and with a wonderful mix of song dance, this brilliant camp spectacle is nothing short of a comedy masterpiece.

Assembly George Square Gardens, until 29 Aug.
