Academy Award winner Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II in ‘The Audience’.

Written by Peter Morgan and directed by two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominated director Stephen Daldry, this special encore screening of The Audience includes an exclusive Q&A with Academy Award winner Helen Mirren and director Stephen Daldry.

For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 13 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, Theresa May, 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 is the winner of three Tony Awards.
