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 the Christmas season, and finds himself bitterly confronted with why he left all those years before.
The Dame is a father and daughter collaboration; it’s a one man show starring Peter Duncan, written by his daughter Katie Duncan.
Originally inspired by their family history of seaside summer entertainment and pantomime, which Peter grew up surrounded by, it gradually evolved into a fictional, dark drama set amid the nostalgic backdrop of this golden, forgotten era.
