“I am reduced to old men, cripples and nancy-boys. Herr Hitler has made it very difficult for Shakespearean companies.”
Ronald Harwood’s splendid tragicomedy brings to vivid life the lost world of the touring theatre troupe; travelling the length and breadth of the country, the rock stars of the early 20th century brought low by the onset of war. Led by their tyrannical actor-manager, this 1980 West End and Broadway hit tells the co-dependent story of Sir and his dresser, Norman, who struggles to keep his beloved master’s life together for one final performance.
“A stirring evening [that] burns with a love of the theatre that conquers all… Perfectly observed, devilishly entertaining backstage lore.” – The New York Times
