The Duke

Hugh Hughes Presents Shôn Dale-Jones


Sold Out

Tickets: £10

To celebrate award-winning Hoipolloi’s 25th anniversary we are proud to present a trilogy of story-telling shows. Hugh Hughes presents Shôn Dale-Jones in The Duke, ME & ROBIN HOOD and The Ladder.

See them separately or buy a joint ticket for all three shows on Saturday 18 May for £30.

The Duke playfully mixes fantasy and reality, taking audiences on an imaginative and touching journey, which gently challenges us to consider our priorities in a world full of crisis.

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.
