Peter Morgan knows Queen Elizabeth the Second very well. The British film writer and playwright created the Netflix series The Crown and the film The Queen. Now New Zealand's about to see The Audience, the original stage version of what was developed to become The Crown.

Taking on the role of the reigning monarch for the Auckland Theatre production of The Audience is Theresea Healey. She has an extensive back catalogue of stage, film and TV appearances including Shortland StreetThe Blue Rose,The Brokenwood Mysteries and Vermilion.

She says playing the Queen on stage isn't about impersonation - it goes much deeper.
