The King’s Speech
April 1, 2020
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
50 Church St
With international war looming, England’s King George V dies, leaving the Crown and the crisis to his youngest son Bertie. Shy, fragile, and afflicted with a profound stammer, Bertie is ill-equipped to inspire and lead a people who are now instantaneously informed by a new invention: the wireless radio.
He seeks help from Harley Street doctor Lionel Logue and finds an unexpected friendship. But can Logue actually cure the King? Their success or failure as therapist and patient will seal their destiny, the destiny of England, and, perhaps, the world. The film that followed the play won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Original Screenplay for original playwright David Seidler.
PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SPRINGFIELD JCC.
