The Dresser

The Hutton Players presents...


Ronald Harwood’s award winning backstage tragicomedy starring Sir and his Dresser.


Set in 1942 in a provincial English theatre, The Dresser takes us into the backstage world of Sir, the last of the great, but dying breed of English actor-managers as he struggles through Lear with the aid of his dresser.  


Sir appears to be falling apart, but the show must go on – despite the air raid and shortage of performers.


Supporting characters of ‘Her Ladyship’, Stage Manager Madge, young aspiring actress Irene and a motley variety of actors (too old or unfit to join the forces) add colour to this powerful play.
