For the first time ever a play which delves into the truth and lies surrounding the death of Princess Diana is coming to the West End.
‘Truth, Lies, Diana’ opens at the Charing Cross Theatre this week and asks audiences to act as a jury when given facts from Diana's case. Writer Jon Conway said the play 'uncovers exclusive new information about Diana's death that is not yet in the public domain.' In his research Conway used real transcripts from the inquest, leaked official documents and MI5. The plot is based around a fictional writer called Ray, played by Conway, investigating the death of Diana.
The play poses questions to the audience and asks them to vote as a jury would in court. Actor Fred Perry who plays James Hewitt in the production said 'there's no doubt people will make up their own minds when they leave the theatre but they will definitely have learnt new information that they woudn't have come to hear in any other play or film'.
Truth, Lies, Diana showcases at the Charing Cross Theatre this Friday and is running until 14th February 2015.
