Redemption for Theatre's Queen of Drama?


In the illustrious world of theatre, few names shine as brightly as Audrey D'Ence. With a career spanning decades, Aud has graced the stage with her captivating presence, earning accolades and admiration from audiences and critics alike. But behind the curtain, whispers of her fiery temper have circulated for years.

Who can forget the poor black eyed stagehand she totally didn’t threw a shoe at, or the director of “The Mousetrap” who coincidentally found his tyres slashed after a dispute about her pay? She’s the queen of drama for sure, and audiences haven’t seen her since her abrupt departure during 2022’s West End production of “Much Ado About Nothing.” Talk about a scene-stealer! Aud broke character mid-performance and gave production a piece of her mind before storming offstage, leaving jaws dropping and tongues a-wagging.

But the drama doesn't end there. Oh no, dear readers, buckle up, for we're about to dive headfirst into the sordid tale of betrayal and broken promises.

Aud was desperate to get back the limelight and reached out to her old friend, (and old flame?!), Kurt Tan – everyone’s favourite thespian. A little bird tells me he dangled the role of Lady Macbeth in front of Aud for his upcoming production of Shakespeare's tragic masterpiece.
