About The AudienceEdit
The Audience is a play written by British playwright and screenwriter Peter Morgan. The play centers on weekly meetings (or, "audiences"), between Queen Elizabeth II (played by Dame Helen Mirren) and her prime ministers. It premiered in the West End in 2013, at the Gielgud Theatre. A Broadway production opened in 2015, which also stars Mirren. A West End revival is playing in London in 2015 starring Dame Kristin Scott Thomas in the lead role.
