VIDEO: Behind The Scenes of THE AUDIENCE at TimeLine Theatre
THE AUDIENCE, written by Peter Morgan, plays at TimeLine Theatre in Chicago until November 12. It follows Queen Elizabeth II and her Tuesday afternoon meetings with her Prime Ministers. Through moments of war, unrest, tension, and negotiation these meetings have been a constant for over 60 years. Morgan re-imagines these meetings, giving us a glimpse into the world of Queen Elizabeth II, and into circumstances that have shaped Great Britain as we know it today.
The show features Janet Ulrich Brooks as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt DeCaro as Churchill / Wilson / Blair / Archbishop, David Lively as Equerry, Cameron Roman as Thatcher / Bobo / Secretary / Security Officer, Mark Ulrich as Major / Brown / Eden / Cameron / Detective, Sophie Ackerman as Young Elizabeth, and Audrey Edwards as Young Elizabeth.
