Théâtre ()


De Ronald Harwood


Résumé: Both hilarious and poignant, The Dresser explores the relationship between two men who are reluctantly and inevitably co-dependent. As World War II rages, backstage in a provincial English theatre, an ageing, once-famous classical actor is troubled. Sir, the last in a dying breed of great English Shakespearean actors, is unwilling to take to the stage to deliver his renowned portrayal of King Lear. It falls to his faithful dresser Norman to rouse another great performance from him, to keep both the show and its star from falling apart.

Commentaires : Ken Stott and Reece Shearsmith come together as lead actor “Sir” and Norman “the dresser” in this eagerly awaited revival of “a wonderfully affectionate and intelligent play about the theatre” The Guardian.
Presse : "Sean Foley’s production settles too. It starts by looking nervously for slamming-door farce. It moves into boldly projecting Harwood’s very funny chaos scenes." Susannah Clapp for The Guardian

"But even in the bittier sections and sketchier characters, the evening is an authentic-feeling pleasure." Dominic Cavendish The Telegraph

"Sean Foley’s somewhat lacklustre production doesn’t make a convincing case for a West End revival in 2016. Even so, this remains an indestructibly watchable play." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
