The Duke Popping up in Blackheath Image by Finn Morrell

You’ve heard of ‘Pop-Up Shops’ – well, we’re offering ‘Pop-Up Theatre Shows’ with another appearance of The Duke popping up in Blackheath at Save the Children’s Mary’s Living and Giving Shop.

For one night only, on Wednesday 30 May you can catch Shôn performing The Duke in the unique and cosy store, established by Mary Portas on Blackheath’s Montpelier Vale. Described as ground breaking, The Duke, which premiered in 2016, set us on the beginning of our journey to create theatre work that raises money and profile for charitable causes. To date we have raised a mammoth £47,000 for child refugees with the show, via Save the Children’s Emergency Appeal and so it is a real honour for us to perform in the heart of Save’s London community.

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.

The boutique store’s design has taken inspiration from the heath and is populated with hand-drawn portraits of some of the area’s most well know residents including painter Jean Cooke, composer Ignatius Sancho, philosopher John Stuart Mill, restaurant critic and one of the first ever celebrity chefs Fanny Cradock, interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowyn, business magnate, investor and philanthropist Richard Branson, Game of Thrones’ John Bradley, and Suffraget Emily Davison. So I think it’s fair to say that you’ll be amongst good company when you join us for The Duke. So what are you waiting for get your tickets now, soak up the art, celebrate the area’s rich history and enjoy our award winning show at the same time. Tickets for the show, are FREE  but donations to the Emergency Fund are welcomed at the end of the performance. Tickets are available here, doors open at 7.00pm and the show starts at 7.15pm.

Look forward to seeing you there, but if you can’t make it, our next stop is HOME, Manchester!
