"A stirring evening [that]...burns with a love of the theatre that conquers all...Perfectly observed, devilishly entertaining backstage lore." - The New York Times

"It's a brilliant show performed by an outstanding company, you'll enjoy every moment."  - Broadway World

Based on the author's own experiences as dresser to Sir Donald Wolfit, this bracing, heartbreaking drama is an elegy to a by-gone era.  Backstage at a theatre in the English provinces during WWII, Sir, the last of the great breed of English actor/managers, is in a bad way tonight, as his dresser Norman tries valiantly to prepare him to go on stage as King Lear.  Unsure of his lines as well as who and where he is supposed to be, Sir is adamantly determined the show must go on.
