Ronald Roy Humphrey has returned to the northern seaside town where he grew up for the Christmas season, and finds himself bitterly confronted with why he left all those years before. A lost world of seaside entertainment, old time music hall and pantomime are brought to life in this one-man show where the past and present collide, magical realism meets bleak reality, and however many masks we wear, the truth will always be revealed. The Dame is a father and daughter collaboration, a one man show starring Peter Duncan, written by his daughter Katie Duncan. Peter Duncan is an actor and presenter, probably best known for presenting Blue Peter in the 1980s. Ian Talbot directs, and is best known for his role as Artistic Director of The Open Air Theatre, Regents Park for 20 years. "It's a heartbreaking story, beautifully written and powerfully played" Edinburgh Evening News
