Filmed in a London theatre and directed by Olivier Award-nominee Ian Talbot (The Pirates of Penzance, Regents Park Open Air Theatre; The Mousetrap, West End), Scaramouche Jones was Shane Richie's first foray into digital theatre.
Now, thanks to popular demand, the production is getting a further online airing on Stream.Theatre from Monday 3 to Sunday 16 May 2021.
Taking on the role made famous by the late great Pete Postlethwaite to critical acclaim, the production is a powerful one-man drama and acting masterclass.
Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn of Ginger Quiff Media said ...
"The response to the production has been overwhelming, and we're thrilled to see the well-deserved recognition for both Justin Butcher's writing, and Shane Richie's phenomenal performance.
We're excited to bring the revival back for On Demand streaming to give audiences the chance to see Scaramouche Jones in action once again."
Show listing information
Scaramouche Jones is a bizarre, comic, and heartfelt portrait of a clown unmasked.
Bursting with exoticism and lyrical prose, Butcher's storytelling creates a fantastical life shaped by extraordinary misfortune as Scaramouche finds himself caught in the riptides of a cruel and changing world.
A witness to pivotal moments of the 20th century, Scaramouche enters the dawn of a new millennium, marking his own centenary and preparing for death.
