Helen Mirren reprises her role as Elizabeth II in the world premiere of The Audience, a new play written by Peter Morgan and directed by Stephen Daldry. The new play will look at The Queen’s relationships with the twelve Prime Ministers who have served during her sixty year reign. Each week she has met with the nation’s Prime Minister at Buckingham Palace - both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said, even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Prime Ministers 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. Prices: £10.00 - £59.00, plus concessions. A limited number of Day Seats will go on sale at £10 each from the Box Office, in person only, from 10am on the day of performance.
