Following David Cameron’s victory in the UK General Election, playwright Peter Morgan has announced that he has updated his script for The Audience – his play about the weekly meetings between the Queen and her Prime Ministers.

On the day Her Majesty 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.

“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 said.
