In 1997, William Luce's play BARRYMORE premiered on Broadway in a celebrated production starring the Academy Award winning actor Christopher Plummer. Last year Plummer reprised his performance (which won him the Tony for Best Actor) for multiple high-definition cameras on the stage at the Elgin Theater in Toronto.

BARRYMORE, set in 1942, follows acclaimed American actor John Barrymore, a member of one of Hollywood's most well known multi-generational theatrical dynasties. No longer a leading box office star, the production finds Barrymore reckoning with the ravages of his life of excess. He has rented a grand, old theatre to rehearse for a backer's audition to raise money for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in Richard III. It leads him to look back on the highs and lows of his stunning career and remarkable life.

Directed, and adapted for the screen, by Érik Canuel, BARRYMORE stars Christopher Plummer in the tour de force performance of his career.
