A major revival of Ronald Harwood’s classic play The Dresser
Olivier Award winner Ken Stott and BAFTA Award winner Reece Shearsmith come together as lead actor “Sir” and Norman “the dresser” in this eagerly awaited revival of “a wonderfully affectionate and intelligent play” The Guardian.
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 Shakespearean actors, is unwilling to take to the stage and it falls to his faithful dresser Norman to rouse another great performance.
Hilarious, poignant and renowned as Ronald Harwood’s greatest play, THE DRESSER has been nominated for Olivier and Tony Awards as well as an Academy Award for the screenplay of the film. Directed by Sean Foley (The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster) this promises to be an unmissable production.
