You won’t find a show with a bigger, better heart  – What’s On Stage | 4 Star Review

Funny, poignant and playful, The Duke is a one man show by Shôn Dale-Jones, artistic director of award winning UK theatre company Hoipolloi. 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 show gently challenges our priorities in a world full of crisis.

Winner of the Edinburgh Fringe First in 2016 and highly commended in the ‘Sit up and Act’ awards in 2018, The Duke has to date, raised over £50,000 for child refugees.
