Readings of Jon Conway's Truth, Lies, Diana Presented Sept. 30-Oct. 1 in Manhattan
By Andrew Gans
Industry readings of Jon Conway's Truth, Lies, Diana are presented in Manhattan Sept. 30 at 6 PM and Oct. 1 at noon at the Snapple Theater Center.
The readings are produced by Alan Darlow and executive producer Scott Zeiger. Bob Tomson directs.
The cast features David Burrows, Jon Conway, Louise English (“The Benny Hill Show”), Glen McCready, Sarah Jane Honeywell and Maurice Thorogood, who portray a variety of roles, including Piers Morgan, Paul Burrell, James Hewitt, Mohammed Al Fayed and members of the Royal Family. "While the spirit of Princess Diana haunts every second of the play, she is not a physical character in the production," according to press notes.
The drama "tells the story of an investigative journalist who finds his own life falling apart as he uncovers startling new revelations and secrets about the alleged 'cover up' of the death of Princess Diana. [The play] uses the actual words spoken by a cast of characters …with revelations from previously silent sources, access to witness statements, medical records and court transcripts."
Author Jon Conway’s recent London hit, All the Fun of the Fair, starring David Essex, was nominated for Best New West End Musical of 2010.
General-managed by Aaron Grant & Aaron Grant Theatrical, Inc., Truth, Lies, Diana is aiming for an Off-Broadway bow in spring 2014.
