David Seidler originally wrote his story about King George VI for the stage before he developed the film screenplay.
However after the Queen Mother asked him not to pursue the project during her lifetime, he abandoned it in 1982.
Earlier this year, Seidler went on to win an Oscar and a Bafta award for best screenplay.
Colin Firth played King George VI who conquered his stammer with the help of an Australian Speech therapist Lionel Logue.
Firth went on to win numerous awards for his role including an award for The Best Actor from the Academy Award.
The stage version will star accomplished theatre actor Charles Edwards - who recently appeared at Shakespeare's Globe in Much Ado About Nothing - in the lead role, with Australian-born Jonathan Hyde as Logue.
The play will receive its premiere at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford on 1 February before moving on to tour Nottingham, Bath, Brighton, Richmond and Newcastle.
