'The Audience' is an unexpected experience of an unrelatable life becoming relatable and of humanity meeting humanity. A life and rhythm is breathed into the script cleverly connecting 'she who is above' to the hearts of the masses, delivering this message: The Queen is a person, she feels and needs and at times her life is unrecognisably and stiflingly difficult. The theatrical value weighs heavily on talent both individual and collaborative; making refined nuances of timing and delivery, well, crucial.
