An eagerly awaited revival of a theatre classicKen Stott and Reece Shearsmith come together as lead actor Sir and Norman 'The Dresser' in this eagerly awaited revival of theatre classic. Hilarious and poignant in equal measure, The Dresser explores the relationship between two men who are reluctantly and inevitably co-dependent. 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 English Shakespearean actors, is unwilling to take to the stage to deliver his renowned portrayal of King Lear. It falls to his faithful dresser Norman to rouse another great performance from him, to keep both the show and its star from falling apart.
The Duke Of York's Theatre has been around for some time: it opened in 1892 as the Trafalgar Square Theatre, and was where Puccini first saw Madame Butterfly. It shortened its name to the Trafalgar Theatre in 1894, before becoming the Duke Of York's a year later to honour the future King George V. It was Grade II listed by English Heritage in September 1960.
