David Seidler’s original play THE KING’S SPEECH is coming to DC! You can catch the original play, which inspired the 2010 Oscar-winning film, at the National Theatre from February 11 to the 16, 2020! The play centers around the true story of friendship between King George VI and his one-of-a-kind speech therapist, as they navigate their way to present King George as a leader during the era of which World War II is on the horizon.
THE KING’S SPEECH is based on the true story of King George VI’s struggle with a speech impediment and the friendship he formed with his unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue. With the Nazi threat looming and civil unrest at home, royal secrets explode around the King as he’s thrust onto the world stage. David Seidler’s original play – which inspired the 2010 Oscar-winning film starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush – will make its long-awaited U.S. debut in a production The Mail proclaims “A right royal treat.”
Drama Desk Award winner Nick Westratewill star as Bertie (Prince Albert, Duke of York), with Michael Bakkensenas speech therapist Lionel Logue.
