A theatrical piece of genius. Scaramouche Jones was a cleverly thought out play. It was a bout a man who had not got much, he pursued a career as a clown and found where he belonged.
The piece takes you through the whole of his life, his childhood, his teenage years and his adulthood.
The play was a demonstration of dramatised storytelling. Pete postlewaite carries of the character is Scaramouche Jones in this single man play incredibly well. He stunned the audience with a performance that blew almost everyone away.
The hero and star of this one man show is a white faced son of a gypsy whore. He lives in the 20th century and shows the difference between himself and the typical 20th century man. He finds himself at different parts of his life, as if he were trying to justify himself and correct his mistakes or even repent his sins in the last few moment of his life. His emotional and gripping life story shocks and moves the audience.
