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

You can have a GREAT story written by a bad author. You can have a dull story acted by phenomenal actors. This is an example of the latter. Too bad as all 3 stars are amazing...

The acting is fantastic, but the story belongs to the theatre. The adaptation is bad and the movie is saved by the lead actors.
