For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace -- a meeting like no other in British public life -- it is private. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. "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.

For The Record:

"The Audience" played London's West End in Spring 2013, starring Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II
