Coming Soon

Helen Mirren reprises her Academy Award-winning role as Queen Elizabeth II in this West End production of The Audience, recorded in 2013. For sixty years, Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers, privately, 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, not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence—and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents 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. From young mother to grandmother, these private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age. The Audience reunites Mirren and writer Peter Morgan following their collaboration on the critically-acclaimed movie sensation The Queen. Directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours).
