Event Description

Do you know the story of Diana? Probably. But do you know our story of Diana? We very much doubt it.

Join Diana in heaven as she shares the untold and untrue tale of her extraordinary life.

Combining drag, multimedia, audience interaction, puppetry and a lot of queer joy – this unique celebration of the people’s princess is as hilarious as it is tasteless.

A brand new show from harbingers of theatrical chaos Awkward Productions, written and performed by Linus Karp and is created with support from Arts Council England, The Pleasance London, Lighthouse Poole and Arts at the Old Fire Station, Oxford.

The show follows our previous productions on how to live a Jellicle life: life lessons from the 2019 hit movie musical ‘cats’ and Awkward Conversations With Animals I’ve F*cked.

This show contains flashing lights, strong language, audience participation and Camilla Parker Bowles.
