For 60 years Queen Elizabeth II has held a private weekly meeting with each of her Prime Ministers. Politicians might have come and gone, but she has remained a constant.

From Peter Morgan, the writer of Netflix’s The Crown, and the films The Queen and Frost/Nixon, Theatre Calgary presents this glimpse of the woman behind the crown. Featuring one of Canada’s finest dramatic actors, Seana McKenna, as Queen Elizabeth II, the show features visits from Prime Ministers Churchill, Eden, Wilson, Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, and Cameron.

The Audience runs January 24 to February 18, 2017 at the Max Bell Theatre, Arts Commons (240 9th Ave. SE). Tickets for all performances start as low as $35 and can be purchased through Theatre Calgary at 403.294.7447 or online at
