Scaramouche Jones – Ginger Quiff Media

Tell me, what will you recount in the last hour of your life? What will be the events, the people, the things that spring to mind while you while away the time? And this is the start and end point of Scaramouche Jones. Powerful. Persuasive. Passionate. This one-man show starring Shane Richie is absorbing and thought-provoking.

Ginger Quiff Media’s rehearsed reading of Little Wars by Steven Carl McCasland, is an emotional rollercoaster taking place against the backdrop of a literary salon in 1940s France. Gertrude Stein (Linda Bassett) and her girlfriend, Alice B Toklas (Catherine Russell) host the get together and their guests talk about everything from their lives as Jewish people during wartime to the role of female writers and their work. Directed by Hannah Chissick, the play opens with typewritten stage directions, which create a nice sense of the period and nods to the literary theme of the play.
