“Every week the Queen of the United Kingdom has a private audience with her Prime Minister. It is not an obligation. It is a courtesy extended by the Prime Minister to bring her Majesty up to speed.”
Spanning sixty years from the 1950s through to the 21st century, Peter Morgan’s The Audience vividly illustrates what might have happened between the late Queen Elizabeth II and her Prime Ministers behind closed doors during their weekly meetings.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 Queen Elizabeth II remained constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
A creative mix of historical evidence, back room gossip and literary imaginings, this play is a witty, thought provoking and a highly entertaining piece of unmissable theatre.The Audience has received sell out runs in both London and on Broadway. Altrincham Garrick Playhouse are thrilled to present this multi-award winning play by the acclaimed writer Peter Morgan (“The Queen” and Netflix’s “The Crown”).
