About the show

David Seidler’s award-winning play The King’s Speech brings to life King George VI’s struggle as he is thrust into the limelight of monarchy before he is prepared. Opening for a limited time at the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre, Seidler’s captivating play explores how Bertie grapples with finding his voice during the threat of a Nazi invasion.

Adapted into a well-known 2010 film starring Colin Firth, The King’s Speech follows Bertie, the younger brother of King Edward III, who is pushed into monarchy when Edward abdicates because of his love of socialite Wallis Simpson. Crowned King George VI of England, Bertie wrestles to overcome an overbearing speech impediment in time to broadcast to a nation on the brink of war. Seeking help from speech therapist Logue, an unconventional friendship between royalty and reality blossoms, with both an amusing and touching outcome.

Charles Edwards stars as the affected King, following performances in Downton Abbey, Much Ado About Nothing and The 39 Steps. Further cast members include Jonathan Hyde as Lionel Logue, Emma Fielding as Queen Elizabeth, Ian McNeice as Winston Churchill, Joss Ackland as King George V, as well as Michael Feast, Charlotte Randle, David Killick and Daniel Betts.
