Yolanda Kettle will star as Princess Diana in the world premiere of writer and broadcaster Jonathan Maitland’s play The Interview which runs at Park Theatre, London, from 27 October – 25 November 2023.

On 20 November 1995 the BBC broadcast an interview between Diana, Princess of Wales and Martin Bashir. It was watched by hundreds of millions worldwide. But now, it is said, the interview has no legitimacy. Is it right that the way it came about has overshadowed what it was meant to be?

This powerful new play by writer and broadcaster Jonathan Maitland (author of Park Theatre hits Dead Sheep, An Audience with Jimmy Savile, The Last Temptation of Boris Johnson) and directed by Olivier Award nominated Michael Fentiman (Amelie, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Loot), gives an insight into the story behind the interview: the woman who gave it, the man who made it happen and the institution that broadcast it.

Writer Jonathan Maitland said: “The things that led to the famous interview and the events that came after it revealed much about our country and its institutions. It’s definitely the stuff of drama and I can’t wait to see our superb cast and brilliant director Michael Fentiman bring it all to life.” 

The production will also star Tibu Fortes as Martin Bashir, Matthew Flynn as Paul, Naomi Fredcerick as Luciana and Ciarán Owens as Matt.

The Creative Team is completed by Set and Costume Designer Sami Fendall, Lighting Designer Emily Irish, Sound Designer and Composer Barnaby Race, Costume Supervisor Logan Kelly, Production Manager Andreas Ayling, Wig Designer Susanna Peretz, Wigs Supervisor Pedro Paiva. The Stage Manager on Book is Kanoko Shimizu and Assistant Stage Manager is Paulina Krauss. The Interview is produced by Steven Atkinson for Original Theatre.


The Interview plays at Park Theatre from 27 October to 25 November 2023
