IRT presents a thriller about one of the greatest media scandals in British history: the publication of Andrew Morton’s book about Diana, Princess of Wales.
Morton's book effectively ended Diana's marriage and shook the monarchy to its core. The question remains: who was the victim, and who the victor? 'In Her Own Words: The Diana Tapes' moves between Morton’s office, the sitting room where the Princess recorded her darkest secrets onto cassettes, and the dingy West London cafe where one of her best friends surreptitiously handed them over. The subterfuge and deception are brought to a scorching climax that changed celebrity, privacy, and the Windsor family forever.
"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."
