About this show

In wartime England, a traveling theater company prepares to perform King Lear while "Sir," the actor in the title role, is spiraling into madness. Sir's devoted dresser, Norman, would do anything to help lift his fallen monarch for one last stage triumph. This affectionate portrait of life backstage is full of vibrant characters and is at once comic and deeply moving. The Dresser< by Ronald Harwood, is directed by ensemble member Amy Morton and features ensemble members Tracy Letts, John Mahoney and Alan Wilder.
