65 Years. 13 Prime Ministers. One Queen
For 65 years, the Queen has met her Prime Minister every week in 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.
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.
Nuffield Southampton Theatres Director Samuel Hodges directs his new version of the award winning play from the writer of the critically acclaimed TV series The Crown and the Oscar award winning film The Queen.
