ASB season of

The Audience

By Peter Morgan

8 MAY - 23 MAY 2019 — Theatre



Auckland Theatre Company


2 hours and 10 minutes including a 20 minute interval



Peter Morgan, screenwriter of The Queen and creator of Netflix’s The Crown, boldly imagines what is spoken behind closed doors.

Deep inside Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II has held an ‘audience’ – a weekly one-on-one meeting with her prime minister. From Winston Churchill through to David Cameron, we witness the Queen's wicked wit, candour and explosive passion.

Get up close and personal as political game changers and scandals that have shaped the Queen's six decades of rule are played out in this magnificent international stage sensation.


"Wonderfully funny" - The Telegraph

"Tartly humorous and profoundly human portrayal" - The Independent
