Tacit Theatre presents a piece of story-telling theatre at its very best with its production of
Scaramouche Jones, by Justin Butcher. A full length play for one actor, Scaramouche Jones tells the
life- story of a 99 year old clown in his own words and bears witness to some of the pivotal moments
of the 20th century.
The Theatre Delicatessen space has been turned into a circus tent, into which comes the eponymous
Scaramouche Jones, a charismatic 99 year-old clown with a wealth of stories to tell from his journey
through the ups and downs of the twentieth century.
We meet our narrator as the festivities begin on millennium eve, his 100th birthday, and the night of
his final and most important performance. He relates his birth at the turn of the 20th century in Portof-
Spain, Trinidad, tells of his childhood in slavery, his rambling across Saharan Africa, his gypsy life in
Milan, his role as a concentration camp grave-digger and his eventual arrival in London, the home of
his mysterious English father. Along the way he meets a spectrum of characters, each with their own
profound effect on his life.
