But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.

Don't miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra) and part of the National Theatre Live's 10th birthday season.
