The Audience Updates Script After General Election!
8 May 2015The script of the hit play The Audience at the Apollo Theatre has been updated following yesterday's General Election!
Peter Morgan has today updated his script for The Audience – a play about the weekly meeting between the Queen and her Prime Ministers – on the day HMQ 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.
“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.” Peter Morgan
