The Audience - London's National Theater, with Hel

The Audience is often wonderfully funny, with the Queen proving a deft mistress of the verbal barb, but also genuinely moving. She shows real empathy for Gordon Brown when he is clearly battling severe depression and a lovely generosity when Harold Wilson confides that he is suffering from Alzheimer’s.

But Mirren also captures the Queen's moments of vulnerability, not least during the break-up of the Prince of Wales’s marriage to Diana, and her sudden anger when she learns of plans to scrap her beloved Royal Yacht, Britannia.

The Audience

by Peter Morgan, directed by Stephen Daldry

 

Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen), plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award®-winning production of The Audience.

Captured live from London’s West End in 2013, the original broadcast returns to international cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 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 Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally 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.
