Absorbing, Clever, Quirky, Relevant

See it if you have not been satisfied by all of the videos from the UK. A fascinating bit of Diana's tale. Score is partner's 90 and my 70.

Don't see it if you had enough re: "D". Need a large production (2 chairs and a table here) It is a bit more than one hour. Read more

The Providence Journal
June 14th, 2017
For a previous production

"The show is just one hour long but is packed with moments that draw gasps of horror and sad shakes of the head from audience members...The dialogue between Diana and her confidante Dr. James Colthurst...is revelatory...The writing is crisp, the staging deliberately and effectively sparse, and the performances delightful...'In Her Own Words: The Diana Tapes' is unique and refreshing, something torn from the headlines and somewhat familiar, yet tense and provocative."
