Book The Dresser Tickets at the Duke of Yorks Theatre, London

In wartorn Britain, most actors find themselves in uniforms -- but the show must go on... with the help of The Dresser

About The Dresser

A major revival of The Dresser by Academy award winning author Sir Ronald Harwood at the Duke of Yorks this autumn, including stars such as Ken Stott and Reece Shearsmith and directed by Sean Foley.


Ken Stott makes a stage appearance in the classic comedy-drama The Dresser alongside Reece Shearsmith, well-known from his roles in The League of Gentlemen and Inside Number 9 one of the most distinguished actors of his generation.

Ageing actor manager, ‘Sir’, is struggling to keep a grip on his sanity and complete his 227th performance of King Lear. Despite bombs destroying theatres, the show is scheduled and nothing can come in its way. Ensuring that it does is Norman, Sir’s devoted dresser, who for sixteen years has been there to fix his wig, massage his ego, remind him of his opening lines and provide the sound effects in the storm scene.

The play was first perfomed in 1980 in the West End and on Broadway, and in 1983 it was filmed, starring Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay and receiving multiple film awards.

From the writer of the Oscar-winning film The Pianist Ronald Harwood, The Dresser has been nominated for Olivier and Tony Awards as well as an Academy Award for the screenplay of the film. With a multi-award winning creative team of Ken Stott (Rebus, God of Carnage), Reece Shearsmith and Sean Foley (The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster) this promises to be an unmissable production of a theatrical classic.

The Dresser is a wonderfully moving and hilarious portrait of backstage life - a truly theatrical treat!
