National Theatre Live Screening: The Audience @ The Irvine Barclay Theatre Tickets
Sep 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
National Theatre Live Screening: The Audience @ The Irvine Barclay Theatre

Broadcast in HD from London’s West End. Captured live from London’s West End in 2013, the original broadcast returns to Irvine Barclay Theatre to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

The Audience, by Peter Morgan and directed by Stephen Daldry. Academy Award winner Helen Mirren (The Queen) plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award-winning production.

For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. From the old warrior Winston Churchill to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.

“Wholly tremendous.” (Daily Telegraph)
