John Dumfries MP has lost his seat and he’s hoping a walk on part on Scotland’s top soap Gallus Palace will rehabilitate his tarnished public image. Angela Laing is Gallus Palace’s Grande Dame – she’s a hard drinking, hard smoking national treasure who has political ambitions of her own. Stuck in between them is Kate Harper; the over worked, under valued producer trying to keep the show on time, on budget and on air. The Cameo is a comedy about politics, show business and the thin membrane that separates the two.
DC Jackson’s work for the stage include My Romantic History (Bush Theatre), The Wall Trilogy (Borderline Theatre), Threeway (Invisible Dot) and Marriage of Figaro and Kill Johnny Glendenning (Royal Lyceum Theatre).
