Details

January 1942. A theatre in the English provinces. ‘Sir’ – the last of Britain’s great actor-managers – is leading a tatty, third-rate tour, bringing the Bard to “every corner of our beloved island”.

Tonight marks his 227th appearance as King Lear. He has never missed a performance… yet. Outside, fall the Luftwaffe’s bombs. Onstage, lies Lear’s blasted heath. Inside Sir’s head, a different storm rages. Only Norman, his devoted dresser, can ensure that both star and show go on. But can they? Will they? Should they?

‘The Dresser’ is Oscar-winner Ronald Harwood’s greatest play - “wonderfully affectionate and intelligent”, according to Michael Billington: an insightful exploration of an increasingly co-dependent relationship between a tottering theatrical titan and his off-stage, off-kilter Fool.

Since its premiere in 1980, this witty, bitter-sweet love letter to the theatre has garnered Oscar, Olivier, Tony and BAFTA nominations. Our unmissable production boasts a multi-award-winning team, both on and off stage: the perfect company to breathe fresh life into this iconic theatrical classic.
