After Henry discovers that Matthew has run away however, he decides to call his ex-wife, Sue, resulting in an uneasy family reunion. When it is revealed that the sixteen-year-old Christine may be pregnant, it prompts Henry and Sue to recall their past, prodded on by the mischievous and conniving Matthew, who wishes to see his parents together again. Brimming with comedic banter and razor-sharp turns of phrase, Father’s Day unpacks its heavy themes with endless humor.

As German bombs lay England to waste, a touring theater company prepares for a production of King Lear. Sir, a tormented but brilliant thespian, arrives on set in a delusional state.

As the theater fills up and an air-raid commences, Sir steps onstage as Lear while the company crosses its fingers. A poignant look at age, companionship, and the persistence of art in a time of war, The Dresser foregrounds humanity at its most vulnerable.
