directed by Michael Wilson
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. Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning director Michael Wilson stages this exciting North American Premiere. Following its Chicago run, the production is slated for engagements at other theaters across the country.
