From the multi award-winning writer and performer behind the much-loved Hugh Hughes, The Duke explores kindness, generosity and the value of what we do. The show has been produced in aid of Save the Children’s Emergency Fund and has raised over £46,000 to date.
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 show gently challenges our priorities in a world full of crisis.
