Lakeside and York Theatre Royal present

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Starring Kenneth Alan Taylor Directed by Matt Aston and Damian Cruden Meet Harold Thropp. He was once the youngest dame in Britain- a time when he would add lines on his face to create character and chase Prince Charming up the palace steps in six-inch heels just because he could. Now he sticks to boots “I like to be as close to the ground as possible” he says. Sitting in his dingy basement dressing room, Harold prepares to become Widow Twankey for the final time. Now the wrong side of sixty he feels his best years are behind him. As he looks back on a life well lived Harold realises that sometimes letting go is the hardest thing to do….and in the glamorous world of theatre it’s easy to get left behind. Not suitable for children. Contains strong language and sexual references.
