The Audience has returned to the West End and stars Kristin Scott Thomas as Her Majesty the Queen

***STOP PRESS: It has already been updated to include the 2015 General Election!***


Previously premiered at the Gielgud theatre in 2013 starring Dame Helen Mirren, The Audience depicts the relationship between Her Majesty and the succession of Prime Ministers she has met during her 60 year reign. The entire play takes place in Buckingham Palace at their weekly private meeting of which the details have never been disclosed – until now!

From Winston Churchill through to David Cameron, The Audience breaks the silence and opens the world up to what might have been said. In times of triumph and defeat, sadness and delight we see the true and sometimes confessional meetings of two of the country’s most powerful leaders.

BREAKING NEWS: 08/05/2015 – The Audience has been updated following the General Election! Peter Morgan has today updated his script for The Audience – a play about the weekly meeting between the Queen and her Prime Ministers – on the day HMQ invites David Cameron to form a new Government.  The updated scene between The Queen and David Cameron, played by Kristin Scott Thomas and Mark Dexter, will be performed for the first time at this evening’s performance.
