Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Linus Karp’s show will open for a new UK tour at The Old Joint Stock Theatre in Birmingham on the 27th September.
Having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story will be travelling to Birmingham, Poole, Manchester, Oxford,
Bristol, Glasgow, Cardiff, Dublin, Nottingham and Farnham, before visiting London’s Clapham Grand as pat of a UK tour.
Talking about the news Linus Karp comments: ” Last November we opened this show in a 70-seat venue in London. A year later I am performing at Clapham Grand, ten times the capacity. I can’t believe the journey this show has taken me on already and am so thrilled audiences across the UK are so hungry for a show full of queer joy and the magical power of Princess Diana. Let’s go girls.”
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 peoples princess is as hilarious as it is tasteless.
Writer and performer Linus Karp (how to live a jellicle life: life lessons from the 2019 hit movie musical ‘cats’) brings Diana to life supported by puppetry and voice overs from Joseph Martin (The Gunpowder Plot, Layered Reality). Geri Allen (Operation Mincemeat, Fortune Theatre) portrays The Queen and Zina Badran (Doctor Who, BBC) joins as God, both via interactive video clips.
The creative team behind this production also includes: Designer Amy Pitt, Choreographer Sam Carlyle, Composer and Graphic Designer Wez Maddocks, LX Designer Ebbe Rodtborg, Additional LX Design James Appleby, Photography and Videography Dave Bird, Video Editor Daniel Boylett, Drag and Makeup Artist Carrot and Puppetry Consultant Tara Boland.
