Richmond Theatre, prior to West End runNot sure how successful it'll be in Central but it's a fine play, although it does make me want to just want to see Ken Stott perform Lear in full. Definitely an actor's play. Lots of backstage business and inside jokes that you only get as an actor. I wish I'd read KING LEAR recently; I think it would have helped.

The Dresser is a dramatic contrast, being the tale of an aging actor and his longtime dresser.
I’ve read other plays that have tackled dementia, and what amazes me is that, for all these plays tread similar ground, all feel unique and different. The Dresser is no exception.
Sir, the aging actor, is perhaps the least likeable of these memoryplagued characters, Mr. Harwood having allowed sufficient hints of the man’s character and past to tinge compassion with reality. Norman, Sir’s everloyal dresser, is an interesting character, as there’s both so much and so little about him on the page. Recommended. That's the world. . . an a stage. . . . acting. . . . so the question is who is perfect?
. . .
Slow motion then fast going. . . showing as how you can't do anything. . . the thing which you can do is just to watch. I see through this play for the sentimental piece that it is, but the unusual and requited love story just works for me and the setting pushes all the right buttons. I'll respect somebody who pans it, but I don't. ó The Dresser ✓ Ends up feeling as inconsequential as the lead character feels. There's some excellent dialogue and characterization here, but it all too often feels like it's leading nowhere. And it pretty much does.
Perhaps I should stick to watching plays instead of reading them. Must have seen the film, have never seen this production, would enjoy it.
You must read this!! If you want my advice.
This is a wonderful, complex, meaningful, funny and sad play.
Norman is at the center of it all and what an amazing character we have. I first saw the adaptation of the play The Dresser, in which Norman was played by Tom Courtenay and Sir, is played by Albert Finney. An extraordinary film, nominated for Five Academy Awards.
Because I loved the film so much, I decided to listen to an audio production of the play and what a joy it was.
The intrigue, the heroes and heroines, the humor and the tragedy all contribute to a feeling of bliss.
It has become one of my favorite plays.
The subject is The Dresser and the action takes place within this th To read it, it's a play about theater, acting, aging, friendship, rivalries, loyalty, alcoholism, and loss. To feel it, it's a play about the war, the frailty of the human spirit in fending off the existential storms, and how poetic language can provide the only dignity against these losing odds.
With the right cast and director, this short but powerful play stands tall about how expensive art is to makehow the stage becomes the arena to collect blood from its actors.
One more thing, most of the attention, the spotlight is for Sir, the career actor getting ready for one more show. But the title cannot be forgotten; it is really about those who serve art, those who carry on in the name of creativity to make the shadows flicker against the cave wall.
It's a lyrical, enchanting, bewitching and ultimately, moving play.
