Tickets are available for The King’s Speech at the Wyndhams Theatre, London from 22nd March 2012.
The film won the Best Picture Oscar award and the stage version looks set to be equally good.
This is David Seidler’s original play which brings the audience face to face with Bertie, Duke Of York, as he is thrust onto the world stage as King George VI following his brother’s abdication. With the Nazi threat looming and civil unrest at home, royal secrets explode around Bertie as he struggles to find his voice as King.
Charles Edwards plays the King and gives an astonishing performance as the King who wrestles to overcome his debilitating speech impediment in time to broadcast to a nation on the brink of war. Jonathan Hyde excels as his maverick therapist Logue, making this unconventional friendship between Royal and Commoner both funny and affectingly authentic.
The King’s Speech is captivatingly brought to life on stage by an outstanding cast, with a shared warmth and intimacy that can only be experienced in the theatre.
The Guardian says “A sheerly accomplished piece of staging”
The Daily Express says “Sporting a tremendous cast of seasoned actors, it is a model of clarity”
The Stage says “It’s a warm, compassionate, humorous script”
