Arriving at the Park Theatre from the 20th February, full casting has now been confirmed for Jonny Kelly’s production.
The cast for the London premiere of Richard Stirling’s play will be led by Felicity Dean as HRH The Princess Margaret. She will be joined by Alexander Knox as Tristan Peel (It Is Easy To Be Dead), the play’s author Richard Stirling as the Queen Mother’s butler William Tallon (aka ‘Backstairs Billy’), and Patrick Toomey (RSC) as John Bindon.
Kensington Palace, 1993. She was the Diana of her day. That day has gone, but HRH The Princess Margaret seeks one final chance to be of service.
Acquiring potentially sensational letters from Charles and Diana, she means to burn the evidence. But there are other papers, relating to Margaret herself. And when an ex-gangster admirer returns from her past, the Queen’s sister has the choice to make or break her family yet again.
Shedding new light on the Queen’s sister, A Princess Undone is inspired by true events and reveals how compelling her story still is.
As well as being directed by Jonny Kelly, the production will feature set designs by Norman Coates, costume design by Boo Williams and sound by Gareth McLeod.
Felicity Dean has appeared on screen in films such as The Prince and the Pauper, Mike Leigh’s Who’s Who, Joseph Losey’s Steaming, Revolution and The Whistle Blower. Meanwhile, her extensive theatre credits include performances in Three Sisters (Birmingham Rep, with Charles Dance; Critics Guild Award nomination), Donna Elvira in Don Juan (Lyric, Hammersmith), Pamela Harriman in Swimming at the Ritz (tour) and Jonathan Miller’s gala King Lear (Old Vic, with Joss Ackland, Michael York and Greta Scacchi).
A Princess Undone will play at the Park Theatre from the 20th February until the 17th March. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.parktheatre.co.uk/whats-on/a-princess-undone
