Wyndham's Theatre
(Leicester Square) Charing Cross Road London

David Seidler wrote The King’s Speech as a play before it became a film for which he won both the Academy Award© and BAFTA for Best Screenplay. Charles Edwards – who recently appeared at Shakespeare’s Globe opposite Eve Best in Much Ado About Nothing for which he received an Evening Standard Best Actor Nomination – plays King George VI, and Australian born Jonathan Hyde, who was recently seen in The Deep Blue Sea at Chichester Festival Theatre, plays speech therapist Lionel Logue.



David Seidler’s story about how King George VI conquered his debilitating stammer with the help of maverick speech therapist Lionel Logue was one of 2010’s most successful films, winning countless awards including four Academy Awards© and seven BAFTAs and grossing over $400,000,000 worldwide at the Box Office.
