David Seidler originally wrote the script for the stage and it was circumstances that led it to be an Oscar winning film before it ever got to the stage and had no problems about staging the production so soon after the film's success.

"This is what I've always wanted," he said. "I had always envisaged the film as being something that would give me a little bit of money so I could help get this on the boards.

"I don't want to sound ungrateful, and I'm not, I'm so very pleased and happy the film did as well as it did. Winning an Oscar is just a wonderful thing to happen - certainly at my age - but this is what I wanted. This to me is more fulfilling than all the movies in the world."

The stage version of The King's Speech responds well to the different approach and the script allows for exploring the characters and themes more deeply than Tom Hooper's film.

"There is now a fully fleshed out relationship between Lionel and his wife Myrtle that didn't exist in the film," he said. "The stage version has a great deal more of the politics and I think a great deal more humour - it's a richer canvas."
