The Dresser

This hilarious yet poignant play explores the relationship between two men who are inevitably, and at times reluctantly, co-dependent. As World War II rages, backstage in a provincial English theatre, an ageing, once-famous classical actor is troubled. Sir, the last in a dying breed of great English Shakespearean actors, is unwilling to take to the stage to deliver his renowned portrayal of King Lear. It falls to his faithful dresser Norman to rouse another great performance from him, to keep both the show and its star from falling apart.

The Dresser has been nominated for Olivier and Tony Awards as well as an Academy Award for the screenplay. Don’t miss this wonderful production of what is widely considered Ronald Harwood’s greatest play.
