Jason Donovan and Raymond Coulthard star in The King’s Speech, coming to the Arts Theatre, in Cambridge, in March.

The production is on nightly at 7.45pm from Monday-Saturday, March 9-14, with a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Thursday and Saturday.

The show is a co-production between Chichester Festival Theatre and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, and the West End show that inspired the Oscar-winning film.

It’s 1936. As the world stands on the brink of war, King Edward VIII has abdicated for the love of Wallis Simpson. Bertie, his brother, who has previously shied away from the public eye because of a terrible stammer, is to be crowned King George VI of England.

With the support of his wife Elizabeth, the much-loved future Queen Mother, Bertie meets maverick Australian speech therapist and failed actor, Lionel Logue, at an office in Harley Street.

Directed by Roxana Silbert, ex-Neighbours star Jason Donovan plays Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue, alongside Mr Selfridge and Hotel Babylon actor Raymond Coulthard who plays King George VI.

The King’s Speech is the true and heart-warming story of one man’s struggle to overcome his personal affliction and, in his country’s darkest hour, deliver the now iconic speech broadcast across the globe to inspire his people.
