Starring Olivier Award-winner, Matthew Kelly and comic, Julian Clary, this brand-new performance of Ronald Harwood’s acclaimed drama is a funny and affectionate portrait of life backstage at the theatre, coming to the Everyman Theatre stage on Monday 20 to Saturday 25 September 2021.
Working as a dresser to an ageing actor known as Sir, Norman is a devoted member of staff who ensures that the show goes on as Sir’s performance of King Lear falls apart.
Exploring the relationship between two men who are reluctantly co-dependent, the play sees the once famous Shakespearean actor unwilling to perform, as his faithful dresser tries to rouse a performance from him, keeping both the show and its star from falling apart – with the pair of actors hoping to bring ‘tremendous pathos’ to the roles.
Please note, this event was originally scheduled for Thursday 10 September to Saturday 19 September 2020, with all ticket holders offered the chance to exchange for the new rescheduled dates.
