The Carer

A funny and poignant tale about a lion of the British stage

Friday 5 – Thursday 11 August

Running time: 1h29m

Brian Cox has a high old time as Sir Michael Gifford, a classically-trained lion of the British stage who has heard the chimes at midnight. An unforgettable Lear and now an impossible human being, Sir Michael is suffering from a rare form of Parkinson’s disease and living out of the public eye. Dorottya (Coco König) is the latest poor soul hired as his carer. Her love of Shakespeare and acting ambitions mean that she has a real chance of breaking down his foul-mouthed resistance and creating a connection with a man whose blustering swagger conceals his vulnerability. The Carer is a funny, poignant tale with a barnstorming gem of a performance from Cox.
