By Philip Meeks
Arriving at his latest theatre, long-standing pantomime dame Harold Thropp finds that he’s been moved to a dilapidated dressing room.
As he prepares himself and begins adorning the war paint of a veteran performer, Harold reflects on the changing canvas of his life. Recounting a joyful path to the height of his career, traumatic secrets are revealed along the way.
As Harold becomes this anxious this may be his final bow, he prepares for an unexpected act of retribution on his celebrity co-star.
A blackly comic and often touching one man show.
