The Dame

As the curtains fall, a seasoned Pantomime Dame is unaware that's he's preparing for a performance of a lifetime

Wed 18 July, 7.30pm


The curtains fall on another show and a seasoned Pantomime Dame is alone in his dressing room; unaware he is preparing for his own performance of a lifetime. 

Ronald Roy Humphrey has returned to the northern seaside town where he grew up for Christmas, and finds himself bitterly confronted with why he left all those years before. As he starts to excavate his past, he steps back into history; bringing to life the ghosts who once paraded and performed along the piers and promenades, removing the layers one by one until he arrives at a tragic truth he had spent his whole life trying to forget. 

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.

 

It’s a heart-breaking story, beautifully written and powerfully played - Edinburgh Evening News
