The Audience

The play centres around weekly meetings called audiences, between Queen Elizabeth II and her prime ministers and premiered in the West End in 2013, at the Gielgud Theatre. A Broadway production and West End revival are scheduled for 2015.

The Audience is centred on the weekly audiences given by Queen Elizabeth II to prime ministers from her accession in 1952 to the present day.
