A Dame of Two Halves


Evening 7.30pm

A Dame of Two Halves

How far would you go to clear your dame? 

This rip-roaring, two-man, thirteen-character comedy adventure takes us on a kaleidoscopic journey through a world of wacky personas, musical masterpieces and some of Scotland’s most captivating places, like Dumfries (and Galloway). 

Join panto dames Aunty Disestablishmentarianism and Aunty Biotics on not one, definitely not three, but two riotous escapades which weave between Pantomime parody and fugitive-crime-thriller-very-serious-genre-play.  

Come and meet the power-crazed monarch, King Dom; the villainous Dylan the Villain; the passionate yet disillusioned Prince Chris; Colin, 32, a Farmer from Dumfries and many (nine), many (still nine) more. 

After a hit run at 2022’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Edinburgh duo Them is Brothers Comedy are reviving their debut show, On the Run: Dame Over!, alongside its brand-new follow-up, Dame Changer: Hostage to Fortune!, as part of a double bill comedy extravaganza. Officially using up the last pun-based title available to them, they present to you: A Dame of Two Halves! 

A kaleidoscope of inventive hilarity!

Jon Culshaw

Energetic, fast-paced, well written... Go and see it!
