The King's Speech - Washington, DC (Regional)

$49-$154

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.

At the end of the evening, sitting in the National Theatre, I was impressed with the care the cast and creative team took to present this story onstage. It's not your standard political drama, and it's not your standard inspirational porn about a person with a disability either. It's a compelling story about a complex man - complex like all of us. As a person who stutters, I may have identified with Bertie's struggles in a more personal way than many theatergoers and appreciated that his voice - his true voice - could be heard and not stifled. However, at the end of the day, don't we all just want to be heard and seen and valued for who we are?
