Funny, poignant and playful, The Duke 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 new show from writer/performer Shôn Dale-Jones gently challenges our priorities in a world full of crisis.
Exploring kindness, generosity and the value of what we do, The Duke was a winner of The Scotsman Fringe First Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Proceeds from The Duke go to Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis.
