Mirror on the Moor

When most of the media is busying itself with the antics of the rich and famous, Living Newspaper Edition 4 is giving voice to those who are more usually the victims of the rich and famous.

‘Satire takes the stage in Tanika Gupta’s Mirror on the Moor, in which an irritable Priti Patel and a narcissistic Rishi Sunak compete to ask a magic mirror that bears the face of Thatcher which of them will be the next Prime Minister. But Thatcher just racially abuses them and is soon replaced by the figure of Dadabhai Naoroji, the first Indian MP in Britain, who supported the Suffragettes and once met Karl Marx. Not surprisingly, he finds Rishi and Priti a bit of a disappointment’ – Keith Mckenna (British Theatre Guide.)
