"My armour, my war paint, the battle out there: it’s all I’ve ever known."

A lost world of seaside entertainment, piers and promenades is brought to life when seasoned Pantomime Dame Ronald Roy Humphrey returns to his Northern roots. As the curtain falls on the last show of the day, Roy is in a wistful, melancholic mood, but as the years fall away, ghosts and memories from the past confront him with what he has spent his whole life trying to forget.

The Dame takes us on a journey inside an entertainer’s mind to expose the fragile creature beneath the make-up, bluster and bravado. However many masks we wear; the truth will always be revealed.

Starring Oliver Award nominated actor and former Blue Peter daredevil Peter Duncan. Written by Katie Duncan and directed by the award-winning Ian Talbot.
