The curtains fall on another show and a seasoned pantomime dame is alone in his dressing room; unaware he is preparing for his own performance of a lifetime. Ronald Roy Humphrey has returned to the northern seaside town where he grew up and finds himself bitterly confronted with why he left all those years before. A lost world of seaside entertainment and old time music hall is brought to life in this one-man show where past and present collide; magical realism meets bleak reality, and discover that however many masks we wear, the truth will always be revealed.
