Regal Helen Mirren to reprise Queen role

Friday September 21, 2012

Dame Helen Mirren is set to take her role as the Queen onto the stage.

The acting veteran won an Oscar for her role in The Queen, a biopic released in 2006.

And in a play by the same writer, Peter Morgan, Dame Helen will play the monarch in The Audience, which is based on the meetings between Queen Elizabeth II and the Prime Ministers during her reign.

The work will imagine the reunions between political leaders from Winston Churchill to David Cameron.

Billy Elliot director Stephen Gladry will lead the production, which will run in the Gielgud theatre from February.
