Diana: The Untold & Untrue Story

At Oran Mor

“Following a sold out, award winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe, ‘Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story’ is making a royal visit.

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.

The latest show from harbingers of theatrical chaos Awkward Productions, written and performed by Linus Karp and created with support from Arts Council England. The show follows our previous productions How To Live A Jellicle Life: Life Lessons From The 2019 Hit Movie Musical ‘Cats’ and Awkward Conversations With Animals I’ve F*cked.

Mumbelina is in trouble. You see, life isn’t easy when you’re short. Just ask Dec from Ant & Dec. But Mumbelina has started to shrink, rapidly!

One morning Mumbelina wakes up to discover she’s shrunk to smaller than Glasgow city council arts budget. And to make matters worse she’s been kidnapped by the wicked amphibian dark overlord Froggie Mercury.
