National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world. The Picture House is very proud to present the first of our live satellite broadcasts with the highly-anticipated West End production of The Audience

Directed by Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours), The Audience reunites writer Peter Morgan and Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren following their collaboration on the critically-acclaimed movie sensation The Queen.

For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve 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. The Audience breaks this contract of silence, and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the 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.

Advance tickets priced £15 (£14) available via www.wegottickets.com (booking fees apply) and from the Picture House during opening hours (no booking fees, cash only & no telephone bookings). All seating is unreserved.

All times listed are the programme start time unless otherwise stated. Films start approx 30 mins after the programme start time.
