NT Live: The Audience

From the National Theatre's third season of live recordings direct from the London stage, a new play by Peter Morgan starring Helen Mirren - reprising her role as Queen Elizabeth II.

From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional." (National Theatre)
