Ageing actor manager, ‘Sir’, is struggling to keep a grip on his sanity and complete his 227th performance of King Lear. Despite most of the country’s actors being in uniform in wartorn Britain and bombs destroying theatres, the show must go on. Ensuring that it does is Norman, Sir’s devoted dresser, who for sixteen years has been there to fix his wig, massage his ego, remind him of his opening lines and provide the sound effects in the storm scene.

Nicholas Lyndhurst is best known for his comedy roles in TV's "Butterflies", "Goodnight Sweetheart" and "Only Fools and Horses".

Julian Glover's many London stage credits include: "Macbeth" at the Albery Theatre in 2002; "King Lear" at the Globe in 2001; "Penny For A Song" at the Whitehall in 1999; "Waiting For Godot" at the Piccadilly in 1998; "Phedre" at the Albery in 1998; "Prayers of Sherkin" at the Old Vic in 1997.
