Barn Theatre Club presents

The Audience by Peter Morgan

The Audience

By Peter Morgan
Directed by Linda Dyne
12th – 20th November 2021 at 8:00pm
Matinee on November 20th at 2:30pm

To be consulted, to advise and to warn - based on the private weekly audience given by the monarch to the prime minister.

If you’d prefer to attend a performance with a more socially distanced audience, we will be selling our matinee and Monday performances to a maximum of half capacity. At these performances we’ll ensure households are seated separately in the auditorium.

Set between 1952 and 2013, The Audience imagines the weekly unrecorded meetings the Queen holds with her Prime Minister. We meet eight PMs, from Eden to Cameron, and her relationship with each is revealed, as well as Her Majesty’s eye-opening thoughts on her younger self and her fears for the future, now more poignant than ever.

Part of the Barn’s 2021-2022 Season.
