Drama The Estates Theatre

The Audience

Peter Morgan


Translation: Zuzana Josková
Stage director: Alice Nellis
Sets: Matěj Cibulka
Costumes: Katarína Hollá
Dramaturgy: Martin Urban

Her Majesty Elizabeth II is the lead character of Peter Morgan’s play, centred on her weekly audiences given to Prime Ministers. It is in a way a fairy tale about monarchy in the modern world and even though it presents the major British premiers, from Winston Churchill to David Cameron, it is theatre about politicians and everyday politics and all its attendant gimmicks, juxtaposed with a certain timeless archaic principle of control over the democratic government.

Czech premiere performances: 19 and 20 March 2015 at the Estates Theatre

We will be presenting the production under the auspices of Her Excellency Jan Thompson OBE, HM Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Czech Republic.
