The Dresser

It’s 1942. The Blitz is at its height overhead, ‘Sir’ about to perform ‘Lear’ in a run-down provincial theatre with an elderly largely untalented cast is exhausted, ill and struggling to remember which play he is in let alone any of his lines.

His long-suffering wife, bitter at his frequent infidelities, is at the end of her tether, and temptation lurks yet again in the shapely form of Irene, a new recruit to the company.

It’s time for the curtain to go up but ‘Sir’ is nowhere near ready either mentally or physically.

Can his increasingly tipsy dresser and his devoted Stage Manager get him to the stage on time?

Both tense and funny, this play is a must for lovers of theatre.

This amateur production of “The Dresser” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Ticket prices includes £1.50 Theatre Maintenance Levy
