11pm Millennium Eve: centenarian clown, Scaramouche, breaks fifty years’ silence to give his final performance charting a bizarre odyssey through crumbling empires, comic misadventures and the 20th century’s darkest episodes, revealing the loves, brutalities, ecstasies and tragedies beneath his seven white masks. As Scaramouche unveils his life, he takes us on an epic, poetic, profoundly moving voyage. An enchanting performance of supreme physical and vocal virtuosity, combined with haunting and evocative designs create a world of indelible images, a glorious story sumptuously told.
Twenty years on from its acclaimed premiere, starring the late, great Pete Postlethwaite, Scaramouche Jones has been produced, performed and translated all over the world. Olivier-Award winning director Guy Masterson joins forces with the original multi-award winning creative team to create a sublime, unforgettable experience.
