THE DIANA TAPES presents the true story of one of the greatest media scandals in British history – the publication of Andrew Morton's book about Diana, Princess of Wales, which ended her marriage and shook the monarchy to its core.
The play moves swiftly between the publisher's office, the sitting room where the Princess recorded her darkest secrets onto cassettes, and the dingy West London cafe where one of her best friends surreptitiously handed them over. The subterfuge and deception are brought to a terrifying climax that changed celebrity, privacy, and the Windsor family forever.
In the 20th anniversary of the Princess’ death in August, this production gives voice to a woman so often defined by images and archetypes, while presenting her complex and multifaceted reality.
65 minutes, no intermission
“These four actors and the playwright's words forcibly command the audience's attention and, in Diana's case, garner much warranted sympathy.”
The Edge Magazine
“The writing is crisp, the staging deliberately and effectively sparse, and the performances delightful.”
“Interesting and compelling... a complicated portrait of a public figure who everyone likely has an opinion about.”
