In Påklädaren, Sven-Bertil Taube and Krister Henriksson meet in a drama about the life on the theater. For direction stands Eva Dahlman. Premiere on the Big Stage at March 24th. Ticket release on October 25 at 12 noon.

One evening, during the last months of World War II, aging actor Sir John and his uniform Norman prepare fore the evenings performance of King Lear. Around them they have a whole ensemble that is completely dependent on the great actor going up to stage and acting.

But Sir John approaches a breakdown and perceives the war’s air alarms and bombings as a personal violation. He refuses to play! The only one who can pick him up on stage is his dresser.

Krister Henriksson is the dresser who lives entirely for the great actor. Sven-Bertil Taube is the great actor who lives entirely for himself and his art. A meeting between two men with completely different tasks – the man who lived a lifetime in the spotlight and the one who closely followed and helped him behind the stage.

The author Ronald Harwood worked himself as an dresser in the 1950s. Since the first performance 1980, the play has been a recurring feature of the theater repertoire world-wide. In 2015, the story was filmed with Antony Hopkins and Ian McKellen in the roles.

Director Eva Dahlman has previously directed successes as Egenmäktigt förfarande at the Scalate Theater/Maxim Theater, Scener ur ett äktenskap at Uppsala City Theater and En handelsresandes död at Dramaten.
