A play telling the political life and times of Margaret Thatcher receives its debut on a Coventry stage on Tuesday.
Three Margaret Thatchers take to the stage in Coventry
Thatcher - The Musical will be aired at the Warwick Arts Centre until Saturday before starting a UK tour.
A cast of ten women make up a cast of Margaret Thatchers and perform songs such as The Cabinet Shuffle, The Tory Blues and The Grocer's Daughter.
The story covers her era in power including the miners' strike, Falklands War and the Brighton bomb.
Former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo told BBC Coventry and Warwickshire people will probably go in with pre-conceptions about Lady Thatcher.
"I think there is still a lot of people who are not objective about the Thatcher years," he said.
"There's a lot of people for whom she is still a hate figure and I think that is wrong.
"In due course in history she will emerge as a very necessary period of transition and change even though much of that change was very, very painful."
Foursight Theatre Company, who produce the musical, said it neither glorified or denigrated Lady Thatcher.
