Produced by Hoipolloi, PBJ Management, Theatre Royal Plymouth in association with The Pleasance Theatre Trust in aid of Save the Children’s Emergency Fund

«In the autumn of 2015 I sit at my desk waiting for an email that will tell me what I need to do to the script to get it onto the screen. I turn the radio on. I listen to a report about the refugee crisis. My mother calls. She tells me she’s broken The Duke. My mother, my film script and the refugee crisis all need my attention.”

Shôn Dale-Jones, the multi-award winning writer/performer behind Hugh Hughes performs the Fringe First award winner, The Duke.

Funny, poignant and playful, the one-man show weaves together the tragi-comic fate of a family heirloom — a porcelain figure of The Duke of Wellington, the quandary of a scriptwriter stretching his integrity and an unfolding disaster as thousands of children flee their homes. Blending fantasy and reality, this playful show gently challenges our priorities in a world full of crisis.

No set ticket prices, pay what you can after the performance and all proceeds are donated to the Save the Children's Emergency Fund.

»...engaging and complex, existing somewhere between truth and fiction, drama and radio, fantasy and reality. Dale-Jones is a natural and immediately likeable storyteller "
