The Kings Speech - Chicago Shakespeare Theater


  • Chicago Shakespeare Theatre 800 East Grand Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Paralyzed by his stammer and unable to speak to a nation in crisis, King George VI ascends the throne as England stands on the brink of war once again with Germany. Enter Lionel Logue, an Australian migrant with a career path as unexpected as the king’s. The remarkable true story of this unlikely bond between a reluctant king and a charismatic subject that inspired the Academy Award-winning film is now brought to the stage, where writer David Seidler first imagined it.
