15 March 2005

Coming soon...

The Dresser

by Ronald Harwood

An aclaimed drama

This wonderful play is a study in vanity, loneliness and ambition, that also has many comic moments.

The action takes place in a provincial British town in 1942 during an air raid.
‘Sir’, an actor-manager – and no youngster himself – is trying to keep his troupe going through all the privations the war can throw at him, including a distinct lack of Brown & Polson and a cast comprising “old men, cripples and nancy-boys”.

Parts to be cast:
Norman - the Dresser of the title
      Age: 40s/50s
      Age: 60s
'Her Ladyship’
      Age: late 40s/early 50s
Madge - the Stage Manager
      Age: late 40s/early 50s
Irene - the young ASM
      Age: early 20s
Mr Oxenby - an ex-soldier invalided out
      Age: 25-40
Geoffrey Thornton - an aging actor
      Age: 60s
(N.B. Ages are for guide only.)
