First look at Felicity Dean as A Princess Undone

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 26 February 2018

“It’s not easy being a Princess”, reads the decorative pillow – leading us to wonder how star of the stage and screen Felicity Dean (The Coast Of Utopia, National Theatre; older Elizabeth I in the 2017 Channel 5 docu-drama) will fare as “Diana of her day”, HRH The Princess Margaret, in the Park Theatre‘s regal drama A Princess Undone.

But from the looks of these first production pictures, it’s a part she’s relishing the challenge of playing.

A Princess Undone is set in Kensington Palace, 1993. Although her day has gone, HRH The Princess Margaret has a final chance to be of service. Acquiring 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 returns from her past, the Queen’s sister has the choice to make or break her family yet again. A Princess Undone – inspired by actual events – sheds new light on the last real princess.

The cast also features rising young actor Alexander Knox as Tristan Peel, the play’s author Richard Stirling as the Queen Mother’s butler William Tallon (aka ‘Backstairs Billy’), and Patrick Toomey as the infamous John Bindon.

For fans of Netflix’s The Crown, it looks like the perfect play – and for those who’ve yet to enjoy it, a perfect introduction to one of royal history’s most fascinating characters. Take a look at the first production pictures below.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
