DEVONSHIRE PARK THEATRE

Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 November |  Tues – Sat 7.45pm, Wed & Sat 2.30pm

Kensington Palace, 1993. She was the Diana of her day. That day has gone. But HRH The Princess Margaret, the most glamorous figure of her generation, has one final chance to be of service.

While the Royal Family is at Balmoral, she removes several bags of correspondence from the Queen Mother’s home, including potentially sensational letters from Prince Charles – and Diana, Princess of Wales. She means to burn them all.

But there are other papers, relating to Margaret herself, and an older scandal… When an ex-gangster arrives to bring her even closer to her past, the Queen’s sister has the choice to make or break her family yet again.

Stars Stephanie Beacham. One of the most riveting new plays of the year.
