What's the one essential thing a King must do? He must BELIEVE he is King

Closed 12 May 2012

When King Edward VIII abdicates for the love of Wallis Simpson, his terrified brother Bertie is thrust into the spotlight and crowned King George VI of England. In a time of national crisis a debilitating speech impediment leaves Bertie incapable of speaking for his country on the brink of World War II.

In a room at 146 Harley Street his wife Elizabeth, (the future Queen Mother), has arranged for him to meet the maverick Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue.

Breaking all royal protocol, the King and his oddball therapist embark together on an unconventional journey to correct the King’s stammer and help him deliver the radio-address that will inspire his country.
