11/23/2016

The Dresser

Location: San Diego, CA

Type: Theater

The Dresser by Ronald Harwood, Directed by Steve Murdock and Produced by Jennifer McKenna.

Based on the author’s own experiences as dresser to Sir Donald Wolfit, this bracing, heartbreaking drama is an elegy to a by-gone era. Backstage at a theatre in the English provinces during World War II, Sir, the last of the great breed of English actor/managers, is in a bad way tonight, as his dresser Norman tries valiantly to prepare him to go on stage as King Lear. Unsure of his lines as well as who and where he is supposed to be, Sir is adamantly determined to roar his last.
