MOVIE SYNOPSIS: For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as “The Audience”. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch. The Audience has received three 2015 Tony Award® nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Helen Mirren), Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role (Richard McCabe) and Best Costume Design (Bob Crowley).
