One fateful night in a small English regional theatre during World War II, a troupe of touring actors are staging a production of Shakespeare's King Lear. Bombs are falling, sirens are wailing, the curtain is up in an hour but Sir, the last of the great, but dying, breed of English actor-managers and who is playing Lear, is nowhere to be seen. His dresser Norman scrambles to keep the production alive but will Sir turn up in time? And if he does, will he be able to perform that night?



During its long West End run the play starred Tom Courtenay and Freddie Jones and was then a successful film starring Courtenay and Albert Finney.
