The King's Speech archiveBertie, the Duke of York, was never meant to be King. Shy, fragile, afflicted with profound stuttering, his occasional public speeches were a torment to himself and worse to those forced to listen. When his older brother David, now Edward VIII, abdicates his throne in exchange for the bed of a twice divorced American with Nazi sympathies, Bertie s wife Elizabeth turns to a Harley Street speech therapist from Australia: Lionel Logue. What transpires in the privacy of Logue s consultation room is the heart of this drama. Can Bertie, the reluctant King, be ?cured to get through his Coronation, and even more daunting, speak via the BBC to anxious millions throughout the world, rallying the troops, a nation, and an Empire to defend democracy? At the crucial moment comes the disclosure that Logue is not what he seems. Carefully researched, this is the true story of a friendship that changed history.
Performers Raymond Coulthard (King George VI), Jason Donovan (Lionel Logue), Nicholas Blane (Winston Churchill), Jamie Hinde (David Prince of Wales/Edward VIII), Felicity Houlbrooke (Wallace Simpson), Claire Lams (Queen Elizabeth), Katy Stephens (Myrtle Logue), Martin Turner (Archbishop Cosmo Lang).
Author David Seidler. Corporate Sponsor Simpson Travel (Chichester). Producer Chichester Festival Theatre. Producer Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Director Roxana Silbert. Design Tom Piper. Lighting Ollie Fenwick. Music Nick Powell.

User Reviews

Linda King. (27May15): Saw last night at Leeds Grand. Loved it, bought a tear to my eye.
Maureen Radcliffe (03May15): Loved it, loved it. Saw it at Great Malvern yesterday.All the cast were superb. If you can see any remaining performance then get a ticket. It's riveting.
Geoff & Maggie Shepherd 09.04.15 (09Apr15): Just seen the production at Woking. Absolutely loved it, thought the actors were picked to perfection for the parts they played, Also the theatre company manipulated the stage artistically as well as ingeniously. No wonder they all got a standing ovation, thank you one and all.
Dawn (08Feb15): Saw the performance yesterday at Chichester and what an amazing show. Raymond Coulthard and Jason Donovan were both excellent as were all the cast. Made even better by the open stage of The Chichester Festival Theatre. Loved every minute of it. Recommended it to my mother who has had a stammer for over 70 years to get tickets for the Manchester production.
