The King's Speech

King George VI (Bertie) is thrust onto the world stage after the abdication of his older brother, Edward. Shy, fragile, and afflicted with a profound stammer, Bertie is ill equipped to lead a nation on the brink of world war.   When traditional medical interventions fail, Bertie’s wife Elizabeth convinces her husband to seek help from an unconventional Harley Street speech therapist, Lionel Logue. Their success or failure as therapist and patient and as unexpected friends, will seal their destiny, the destiny of England and perhaps the world, in this compelling true story. David Seidler’s THE KING’S SPEECH makes its long-awaited U.S. debut in a production The Mail proclaims “A right royal treat.”

Recommended for ages 13 and up.
