In a touring Shakespearean theater group, a backstage hand - the dresser, is devoted to the brilliant but tyrannical head of the company. He struggles to support the deteriorating star as the company struggles to carry on during the London blitz. The pathos of his backstage efforts rival the pathos in the story of Lear and the Fool that is being presented on-stage, as the situation comes to a crisis.
Cast: Jan Malmsjö (Norman), Hannes Meidal (Sir), Noomi Norén (Irene), Lakke Magnusson (Herr Oxenby), Ingela Olsson (Madge)
