An acclaimed male monologue from the 2016 Edinburgh Festival

"In 1974 my father invested a year's salary in a Royal Worcester porcelain figure of The Duke of Wellington on horseback

He kept the figure we affectionately called The Duke, wrapped in sponge, in a big box, under his bed

After he died in 2001, my mother decided to take the figure out and display it on the table in the bay window

In the autumn of 2015 my mother calls

She tells me she's broken The Duke"
