The Duke of York's Theatre
Co-Produced and Co-General Managed
A major revival of Ronald Harwood’s classic play The Dresser.
Olivier Award winner Ken Stott and BAFTA Award winner Reece Shearsmith came together as lead actor ‘Sir’ and Norman ‘the dresser’ in this 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.
