as the first offering in the 13 th Annual Sam Scripps Shakespeare Festival. The play focuses on Sir, a great Shakespearean actor now entering the last days of his career, and his dresser. Based off of the author’s own experiences as a dresser to Sir Donald Wolfit, the play is set backstage at a theater in the English provinces during World War II. Sir, one of the last great English actors, is not up to par for the nights show. It is up to his dresser, Norman, to courageously prepare him to go on the stage as King Lear.
