WHAT'S THE AUDIENCE ABOUT?
For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said, not even to their spouses.
The Audience imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister uses these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional – sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive. In turn, the Queen can't help but reveal her own self as she advises, consoles and, on occasion, teases.
These private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age, from the beginning of Elizabeth II's reign to today. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
WHO IS IN THE AUDIENCE?
Kristin Scott Thomas takes on the role of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II previously played by Dame Helen Mirren. Further casting is to be a nnounced.
In 2015 work will begin on a Netflix television series based on The Audience.
