- The King's Speech
What's the one essential thing a King must do? He must BELIEVE he is King
When King Edward VIII abdicates for the love of Wallis Simpson, his terrified brother Bertie is thrust into the spotlight and crowned King George VI of England.
In a room at 146 Harley Street, Bertie and his wife Elizabeth, (the future Queen Mother) are meeting the maverick Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue. Breaking all royal protocol the King and his oddball therapist embark together on an unconventional journey to correct the King's debilitating stammer and help him deliver the radio address that will inspire his country on the brink of World War II.
See the world premiere of David Seidler's original play which inspired his famous Oscar®-winning film."
The 2012 run is directed by Adrian Noble, former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and features Charles Edwards as George VI and Jonathan Hyde as Lionel Logue.
