@READ DOWNLOAD Ç The Audience ⚸ eBook or E-pub free

Not bad I suspect this is an earlier version of the script, compared to the one that was played in New York when I saw it I think the changes made between the two versions were an improvement, but this is still quite nice. @READ DOWNLOAD ó The Audience é 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 Not even to their spouses The Audience breaks this contract of silence It 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 explosiveFrom young mother to grandmother, these private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next prime minister The Audience by Peter Morgan premiered at the Gielgud Theatre, London, in March All I could think throughout reading this play was Wow, what a challenge for the female lead Which isn t a bad thing It s kind of great I just wonder how aging her would work throughout But I m sure there s a way Other than that, I bet this would have beeninteresting to someone who knowsabout the royal family and British politics That s definitely a huge gap for me and I know basically nothing about either Nevertheless, it was nice to get some fictional insight into the queen All I could think throughout reading this play was Wow, what a challenge for the female lead Which isn t a bad thing It s kind of great I just wonder how aging her would work throughout But I m sure there s a way Other than that, I bet this would have beeninteresting to someone who knowsabout the royal family and British politics That s definitely a huge gap for me and I know basically nothing about either Nevertheless, it was nice to get some fictional insight into the queen, whom we really do see as just a figure, not really a human Especially now that she s so old And just the fact that she s been through so many prime ministers is astounding, so it was cool to see her different interactions with them But ultimately, this play didn t really tickle anything in me, so I m giving it the good old middle rating An amusing re imagination of the private audiences held each week between the Queen and the Prime Minister But it seems contradictory On the one hand we are told that the Queen s strength is her ordinariness on the other hand she emerges as an observer of uncommon wisdom Even at the outset, in her first meeting with Churchill, she seems steadfast and strong willed And then, four years later, she shrewdly discovers and analyzes the English disaster at Suez Entertaining, and an obviously terr An amusing re imagination of the private audiences held each week between the Queen and the Prime Minister But it seems contradictory On the one hand we are told that the Queen s strength is her ordinariness on the other hand she emerges as an observer of uncommon wisdom Even at the outset, in her first meeting with Churchill, she seems steadfast and strong willed And then, four years later, she shrewdly discovers and analyzes the English disaster at Suez Entertaining, and an obviously terrific vehicle for Helen Mirren, I found her character hard to believe Imagines the queen s meeting with several of her Prime Ministers of all political stripes , and passed reflections between her older and younger selves Wry and sharply observational My first experience reading a play I m not sure what the usual length of plays are, but this one was rather short I read it in one day basically one sitting I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I am biased fan of Peter Morgan and the royal family Very interesting imagined private audiences with the Queen and her Prime Ministers Not all are included and there is only one or two scenes with each of them Very human aspects of both the politicians and the Queen are presented. I really thought I was going to be bored not so Reading The Audience made me want to see the play evenThe dialog is packed with power moves between the queen and which ever prime minister she is speaking to, and besides the status relationships, you even get some empathy in there to for both the queen and the PMs Watching this on stage would be evenriveting, I bet It also brings up many good questions such as, how can why should a modern monarchy survive To check out my reviews 2017 Challenge 3 Finish a book in one day.When I heard the news that Helen Mirren would be replaying the role of

that Helen Mirren would be replaying the role of Queen Elizabeth II for this magnificent play called The Audience, I about lost my sh %t when I realized that I would never get to see this magnificent performance on the big stage because I do not live in London or NYC Luckily I was able to procure this fascinating play into my life and for months it remained untouched on my bookshelf until now Every summer I get excited for the infamous BookTubeAThon which is a week long marathon where you try to accomplish several reading challenges while basking in the fun of reading I figured for this challenge I needed a book that was short and sweet and this fit the challenge It helps that I ve been marathoning the BBC version of House of Cards which surprisingly taught me how Parliament works and the role of Prime Minister.Queen Elizabeth has been the longest reigning monarch in UK history and holds the record for having the most Prime Ministers during her reign 13 PMs as of 2017 which is shocking considering she has experienced all the ups and downs of the last half of the 20th century So much has changed since she ascended the throne in 1952 and yet one tradition that remains the same is her weekly meetings with the Prime Minister There is no written law in the constitution that enforces these two separate heads of government to meet and yet this tradition is hold sacred in British culture These meetings all started during World War II under the reign of her father, King George VI with Winston Churchill and after the war was over it became a weekly routine that neither party wanted to stop.Once her father passed away, Churchill became Elizabeth s first Prime Minister who essentially taught her the rules of what these meetings dictate and as time passes we see how it has adapted and taken form under each new Prime Minister These meetings are held privately without any written record of what has taken place which is understandable but imagine if we the public had the opportunity to know what exactly went behind closed doors between these two individuals and that is where the magic of Peter Morgan comes in.If you do not know who is Peter Morgan, he is the creator of Netflix s The Crown and wrote the screenplay for The Queen so it comes as no surprise that Peter Morgan has the gifted insight of tapping into the minds of the Royal Family I believe he is perfect for writing this play because he pays major respect to both the Queen and the Prime Minister yet shedding light to the reality of what was taking place during each Prime Minister time in office What I enjoyed the most about this play was Peter Morgan didn t follow the dialogue in a linear format so there is a bit of suspense as to what particular Prime Minister is going to show up on stage.At the end of the day the Queen will always guarantee her support for the Prime Minister and that is a difficult task to uphold because naturally we tend to have preferences when it comes to our leaders and over the course of decades there has been leaks about who were her favorites and which one she despised so Peter Morgan used that information to his advantage and while the conversations held in this play is fictional, Morgan has the natural gift of making it sound believable and it feels as though you the audience are these private meetings with the Queen.I love anything that has deals with Royalty so naturally I am biased and I need to warn anyone who wants to read this play, if you have no clue about British history, Parliament, and the Prime Minister then I suggest you either pick something else to read or crack open a book and learn the gist of British culture because otherwise it will leave you completely confused Remember this is a play not a novel so the author does not have time to supply enough information about the importance of each and every meeting that takes place in this story and the controversy that naturally surrounds the Prime Minister If you have no qualms about it then I believe you will encounter a refreshing and beautiful take on Queen Elizabeth II and her relationship to the Prime Minister Loved this Imagined or not, you believe these conversations between HMQ and the various PMs she had met over the years Peter Morgan is a top author His Frost Nixon, The Deal, The Damned United all brilliant films Only matter of time before The Audience hits the screens.
