MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck's Wednesday Derrico -- Judge Christie Derrico's daughter -- is directing a play that is premiering this week at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.
The four-week festival takes place each August in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city. In 2015 there were 50,459 performances of 3,314 shows in 313 venues, making it the largest-ever arts festival in the world. This year, 3,667 shows are scheduled.
The younger Derrico will direct the debut of the play "In Her Own Words: The Diana Tapes." It's written by James Clements, a Glasgow-born, New York-based playwright. Derrico graduated from Mamaroneck High School and attended Tisch NYU.
With 2017 as the 20th year of the passing of Princess Diana, Clements decided to premiere the play, he told HeraldScotland.com, before people are caught up in the "frenzy of insane babble."
In that interview, Clements described his work as an "unapologetic, fast-paced thriller," focusing on the tapes she'd recorded, that became the basis of the highly controversial book "Diana: Her True Story."
