Peter Morgan updates The Audience to reflect the results of the 2015 General Election.
In light of the General Election, Peter Morgan has wasted no time in updating the script for The Audience – a play about the weekly meeting between the Queen and her Prime Ministers . Only 1 day after the election, and on the day the Queen invites David Cameron to form a new Government, the updated scene between The Queen and David Cameron, played by Kristin Scott Thomas and Mark Dexter, will be performed for the first time at this evening’s performance.
Peter Morgan said “In the same week as we opened The Audience it’s been particularly interesting to have experienced such a dramatic general election. This morning I have rewritten the scene in my play between The Queen and David Cameron to reflect the events of last night and this morning. Kristin Scott Thomas and Mark Dexter will be rehearsing this new dialogue this afternoon and I hope tonight’s audience in particular will enjoy our immediate response today’s results.”
Stephen Daldry’s production of The Audience starring Kristen Scott Thomas opened at the Apollo Theatre earlier this week and is currently booking to 25 July 2015.
