The Audience (PG)

Director Stephen Daldry and Robin Lough. Comedy/Drama


No Trailer Available

A National Theatre Live recording. For Sixty Six years Elizabeth II has met each of her thirteen Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace- a meeting like no other in British public life- it is private. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence- and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between 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- sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.

Starring Helen Mirren, Rufus Wright, Richard McCabe, Edward Fox, Haydn Gwynne


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The play was well filmed and clear. It was funny and well written. It was recorded in 2013 so a little dated but still relevant. Would recommend it if your audience wanted a slightly different experience.

A totally different experience. We really were in a theatre. Helen Mirren was superb and so were the supporting actors. Everyone enjoyed the interval visit behind stage to see the costume department and to hear interviews with the designers. It was a long film and people were given the option at the end to leave or to stay on to hear the interview with Helen Mirren. Everyone stayed.
