For sixty years Queen Elizabeth II has held a private weekly meeting with each of her many Prime Ministers. Politicians have come and gone, but she has remained a constant. Through this riveting drama, we get a glimpse of the woman behind the crown and what it’s like to be one of the most famous, and yet most private people in the world. Expect visits from Churchill, Cameron, and Thatcher, among others. Elegant, majestic, and highly illuminating.
I am fascinated by two women on this project: the elusive Queen Elizabeth, who has seen so much and been such a curiosity for her entire interesting life, and the remarkable actor Seana McKenna, who will take on this role. Seana has all of the complexity and insight, pathos, and humour befitting a queen. This is an actor and a role you’ll not soon forget. - Dennis
