NEWS: Royal Court Announces New Play by Shôn Dale-Jones

The Royal Court Theatre has announced that it will be hosting four performances  Shôn Dale-Jones’ new solo show The Duke from the 28th November until the 2nd of December. 


Written and performed by Shôn Dale-Jones, the solo show will take audiences on a journey that is both imaginative and touching, mixing reality with fantasy. 

“I sit at my desk waiting for an email that will tell me what I need to do to get my film script onto the screen. I turn the radio on. I listen to a report about the refugee crisis. My mother calls. She tells me she’s broken The Duke.

My mother, my film script and the refugee crisis all need my attention.”

The production, which is currently running at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, is produced by Hoipolloi, PBJ Management and Theatre Royal Plymouth in association with Save the Children.

While this is a free event, at the end of each performance there will be a collection, with all proceeds going to Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.

Duke will run at the Royal Court from the 28th November until the 2nd December. For more information visit:
