Event Date:

Barnfield Theatre, Exeter

ELTC return to Exeter’s Barnfield Theatre this September to bring to life Ronald Harwood’s The Dresser, which captures the drama and relationships behind the scenes of a touring theatre company during World War II.

Taking centre stage is Sir (David Gunn-Johnson), the last of the great, but dying breed of English actor-mangers. However, when he arrives at the theatre in a bad shape and unsure what play his company are performing, or his lines, he must rely on his trusted dresser Norman (Dave Hill) and fellow actors to get him on stage.

Barbara Landis, artistic director of Chamber Opera Tours, found Jane Austen’s language so perfect that it begged to be adapted to theatrical lyrics. The adapted original musical drama of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which first premiered at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago in 2011, has been touring internationally since 2013.  

This summer, Chamber Opera Tours will arrive in Paignton to perform a one-night-only performance at the Palace Theatre on 22 September at 7.30pm, on the heels of several performances at the 2018 Jane Austen Festival in Bath.
