Winner of The Scotsman Fringe First Award 2016

A new one-man show by Shôn Dale-Jones The Duke playfully mixes fantasy and reality, taking audiences on an imaginative and touching journey which gently challenges us to consider our priorities in a world full of crisis. 

I sit at my desk waiting for an email that will tell me what I need to do to get my film script 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 is Artistic Director of Hoipolloi, who combine original storytelling with an inventive spirit. He is also the award-winning writer/performer behind his comic creation, Hugh Hughes.

No set ticket prices, pay what you can after the performance. All proceeds go to Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.
