Truth, Lies, Diana a unique ground-breaking ‘factional’ drama written by Jon Conway, containing sensational new information about the death of Princess Diana, will make its UK debut at the Charing Cross Theatre in January 2015.
Truth, Lies, Diana is the story of ‘Ray, a playwright who uncovers secrets about Diana and her death, that the Establishment have tried to keep hidden. As he strives to reveal the startling evidence, his personal life starts to unravel when he suspects the wife he is devoted is being unfaithful. The play charts his descent into paranoia as he has to decide what to do with the truths that confront him.
Jon Conway conducted meticulous forensic research, based on a series of books by investigative journalist John Morgan, uncovering in the process revelations from previously silent sources. With fresh access to Police witness statements, medical records and court transcripts, the play uses the actual words spoken by a cast of characters including the British Royal Family, Piers Morgan, Paul Burrell, James Hewitt, Mohammed Al Fayed, members of MI5, the British and French police and witnesses to the crash that took the lives of Diana, Dodi Al Fayed and the driver Henri Paul. The ‘play within a play’ format presents the incredible set of coincidences surrounding the ‘unlawful killing’ verdict of Diana’s death and leaves it to the audience to reach their own verdict.
Truth, Lies, Diana was originally produced off-Broadway for a press embargoed try out run at the Snapple Theatre, Times Square in 2013. Jon Conway will star as ‘Ray’ opposite Kim Tiddy (The Bill, Hollyoaks) who will play Ray’s wife ‘Suzy’ and Debbie Arnold (EastEnders) will play ‘Gina’, a journalist.
Truth, Lies, Diana runs at The Charing Cross Theatre from 9 January – 14 February 2015.
