In the 1983 UK election, one woman knows who to vote for, but something holds her back. In the 2017 UK election, another woman can’t wait to cast her vote, but she struggles to raise her voice when it matters most.

Twice Over examines the leadership of Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May through the lives of two young working-class women. As history moves in parallel, we use prose, poetry, verbatim and music to explore representation, gender, family and class whilst lending a voice to history’s forgotten working women; asking, what progress has been made during 30 years of political evolution and two female Prime Ministers.
