The Audience - Nt Live 2013 (theatre)
National Theatre Live will broadcast the highly-anticipated West End production of The Audience, with Helen Mirren reprising her Academy Award-winning role as Queen Elizabeth II, live from London's Gielgud Theatre on 13 June. For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said - not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence a' 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 a' sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.
