STAGE SHOW ... actor and Sunderland fan Paul Dunn is starring in one-man show I Left My Heart In Roker Park.

A DEVOTED football fan will be living the dream when he performs a one- man show about his beloved Black Cats.

Paul Dunn, who lives in South Shields, will be starring in one-man show I Left My Heart In Roker Park later this year.

The 39-year-old actor is taking the show to South Shields, Washington and Durham, and is calling on Sunderland fans to show their support.

The show, by Jarrow playwright Tom Kelly, focuses on the devotion of a fan from the team’s Roker Park days through to the turmoil of last season.

Paul, originally from Sunderland, plays lifelong fan Kevin Halliday, who over the course of an afternoon in the back garden of his home – on the site of the former Roker Park – recalls the events of his life as they interweave with the fortunes of his beloved club.

He said: “It is a play about excitement, heartache, disappointment, satisfaction and jubilation.

“For Kevin, watching his team and living his life have both provided them all.

“Tom Kelly has updated his original 1997 script.

“It’s a funny, poignant and ultimately heart-warming play that tells the story of one man’s journey through his life and loves.”

The show will be performed at the Customs House, in Mill Dam, South Shields, on September 19 and 20, Washington Arts Centre on September 25 and Durham Gala on September 27 and 28.

Tickets for the South Shields shows cost £9 with a £7 concession.
