“It’s not easy being a Princess”
Kensington Palace, 1993. She was the Diana of her day. That day has gone. But HRH The Princess Margaret has a final chance to be of service.
Acquiring potentially sensational letters from Charles and Diana, she means to burn them all. But there are other papers, relating to Margaret herself. And when an ex-gangster admirer shows up, the Queen’s sister has the choice to make or break her family yet again.
Inspired by actual events, A Princess Undone visits The New Theatre Royal, Lincoln prior to a London run – starring Harriet Thorpe, much loved for her appearances in Absolutely Fabulous and The Brittas Empire (TV) and Calendar Girls (film) as Princess Margaret, with a supporting cast of West End actors.
