The play, which tells of George VI's struggle to overcome his speech impediment before declaring war on Germany, will be staged from the 1st to the 19th of Julio with Adrián Lastra in the starring role
From the 1st to the 19th of July the Poliorama Theatre will host the theatrical version of The King's Speech, which opened in cinemas in 2010 to enormous critical success, earning 500 million euros in box offices throughout the world and winning a total of four Academy Awards, including Best Film. The theatrical version is directed by Magüi Mira and is based on a version by Emilio Hernández which, in turn, is based on the play written by David Seidler, who previously wrote the screenplay for the film.
The King's Speech is set in the late 1930s and tells of the struggle by the King of England, George VI, to overcome his speech impediment, a condition that caused him many problems at the time of defending his throne. In an effort to cure his impediment, the king contacted Lionel Logue, a speech therapist whose peculiar methods would help the king improve his oratory abilities, an achievement that would prove critical in his upcoming mission, to declare war on Germany.
The play stars Adrián Lastra in the role of King George VI and Roberto Álvarez in the role of Lionel Logue. Ana Vila, Gabriel Garbisu, Lola Marceli and Ángel Savin complete the cast.
