The Audience

The Audience

A film by Stephen Daldry
Starring Helen Mirren, Edward Fox

National Theatre Live is an exciting initiative to broadcast live performances of the best of British Theatre to cinemas around the world.

Helen Mirren reprises her Academy Award winning role as Queen Elizabeth II in the highly-anticipated West End production of The Audience.

For sixty years, Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace – a meeting like no other in British public life. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. The Audience imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Prime Minister and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional – sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.

Funny and truthful, good-hearted, spiky, full of surprises. I loved every minute.The Times (UK)
