For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.
From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.
The Audience has received two 2015 Tony Awards® for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Helen Mirren) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role (Richard McCabe). Helen Mirren also received the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Play for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience, reprising her Academy Award winning role from the film The Queen, also written by Peter Morgan. She is also the recipient of two Golden Globe, three BAFTA, three Screen Actors Guild and four Emmy Awards.
The Audience is written by Peter Morgan (The Queen) and directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours), and was presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.
There will be a 20 minute intermission.
