Helen Mirren reprises her Academy Award winning role as Queen Elizabeth II in this highly anticipated new production. For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace, with both parties agreeing never to repeat what is said. THE AUDIENCE breaks this contract of silence and 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 explosive.
