Now except for the fact the Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren is starring in it I have no idea what The Audience is about. So instead if trying to tell you I will share with you a brief synopsis about The Audience from the shows official website. Enjoy!
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 – it is private. 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. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
Well would you look at that. Helen Mirren is playing Queen Elizabeth again. Only this time it's a different Queen. Written by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) and directed by Tony winner Stephen Daldry(Billy Elliot),The Audience is set to begin previews at the Gielgud Theatre in London on February 15, 2013.Get your tickets to see The Audience with Helen Mirren. Should be a great night in the theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
