Festival Season Frenzy for THE DUKE (c) Brian Robertson
It’s hot, hot, hot ☀️☀️☀️ and Festival season is officially here.
And on that note we’re delighted to confirm that Shôn will be performing THE DUKE at not one, but two Fringe Festivals this summer. First it’s a trip up north to the place where it all began with THE DUKE returning to this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe having received The Scotsman Fringe First for the show when it premiered back in 2016. He’ll be performing at the Pleasance Courtyard between Wednesday 01 and Monday 13 August. Then it’s a hop, skip and a jump over the border to Carlisle, when he’ll be at the Old Fire Station on Wednesday 24 August for this year’s Carlisle Fringe.
We can’t quite believe that since The DUKE opened it has been seen by over 8,000 people by audiences as far afield as Australia, been commissioned into a radio play for BBC Radio 4, been rated as BBC Radio 4’s ‘Play of the Week‘ and raised over £47,500 for Save the Children UK‘s Emergency Fund to help child refugees around the world.
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. If you’re travelling to the Edinburgh Fringe, or on holiday in the Lakes, or know anyone is for that matter and you or they are able to join us, we’d love to see you!
Edinburgh Festival – Pleasance Courtyard | Wed 01 – Mon 13 Aug – 12.45pm | Tickets here 
Carlisle Fringe – Old Fire Station | Wed 24 Aug – 6.00pm | Tickets here
