The Audience

Wednesday 8th - Saturday 11th September

65 Years. 13 Prime Ministers. One Queen

We’re delighted to announce the first of our post-lockdown plays, ‘The Audience’ by Peter Morgan. For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 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. 
Taking place between 1952 and 2016, this incredible play offers us glimpses of the woman behind the crown, the men and women behind 10 Downing Street, and to witness the moments that shaped a monarch.

Written by Peter Morgan (‘Frost/Nixon’ and ‘The Queen’), this award-winning play was the original basis for his follow-up Netflix show, ‘The Crown’.
