The Dresser

Lamplighters Theatre
5915 Severin Dr. La Mesa

Backstage at a theater in the English provinces, Sir is in a bad way. His trusty dresser Norman tries valiantly to prepare him to go on stage as King Lear, but the task is even harder than usual. Unsure of his lines as well as who and where he is supposed to be, Sir, the last of the great breed of English actors, is adamantly determined to roar his last -- and with Herculean effort on the part of Norman, Sir finally makes it on stage. This much-praised drama, which was adapted into a 2015 BBC film starring Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen, examines both an actor's determination to his craft no matter the consequences and the dynamic relationships within a theater itself. Marvel at all the heartbreaking drama of The Dresser at La Mesa's Lamplighters Community Theatre.
