Nuffield Southampton Theatres Director Samuel Hodges directs his version of the award winning play from the writer of the popular TV series The Crown

Prime Minister: I never sleep much. 

Queen: Oh dear. I like the idea of any person with the power to start a nuclear war being rested.

For 60 years, the Queen has met her Prime Minister every week. An audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties agree never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses.

What is discussed? What secrets are shared? Does her Majesty have her favourites?

Sometimes intimate, often confessional, occasionally explosive, The Audience imagines the private moments that define a changing Britain. One head of state. Endless heads of government. This play asks where the real power lies.
