Scaramouche Jones sees the titular clown set to celebrate his 100th birthday, recounting his incredible life in an everchanging world. Shaped by misfortunes of slave ships, concentration camps and royalty, Scaramouche's centenary reflections also see him preparing for death.

He was due to return to Everybody's Talking About Jamie as Hugo/Loco Chanelle at the Apollo Theatre, with performances postponed due to the pandemic.
