The Dame by Peter Duncan

A pantomime dame sits alone in his dressing room applying his make-up, preparing for the performance of a lifetime. He has returned for the Christmas season to the northern seaside town where he grew up, and is bitterly confronted with why he left all those years before. As he excavates his childhood, he steps back into history; bringing to life the ghosts who once paraded and performed along the piers and promenades. The ‘good old days’ are brought to life as truths are revealed. A one-man show where magical realism meets bleak reality head on.

Aug 21st-Aug 26th, 10:45am (V) £10.00 (£8.00)
