Production images have been released of Shane Ritchie in the upcoming digital production of Justin Butcher’s play.
Streaming online from the 26th March until the 11th April through Stream.Theatre, Shane Richie is set to star in this new digital production of Justin Butcher’s one man show.
This new revival of the show was filmed in a London theatre and is the latest production from Ginger Quiff
Media – the OnCom award-winning team behind the acclaimed revivals of Martin Sherman’s Rose starring Dame Maureen Lipman, and Little Wars featuring Juliet Stevenson and Linda Bassett.
Shane Richie is best known for playing the role of Alfie Moon in Eastenders and starring in the most recent series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Taking on the role made famous by Pete Postlethwaite, Shane Richie said of the news: “I am honoured to walk in the footsteps of the legendary actor Pete Postlethwaite and take on the role of Scaramouche Jones in Justin Butcher’s amazing play.”
This powerful one-man drama recounts an epic and mesmerising tale of a life shaped by extraordinary misfortunes, from the shores of Trinidad to England by way of slave ships, Italian royalty, and Croatian concentration camps. A witness to pivotal moments of the 20th century, Scaramouche finds himself at the dawn of a new millennium, marking his own centenary and preparing for death.
Talking about the production, producers Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn of Ginger Quiff Media said: “We’re thrilled to continue to expand our digital portfolio, with what we consider to be one of the greatest British plays. It’s exciting to be working with Shane to bring the character of Scaramouche Jones to life on stage and straight into your living rooms.”
Scaramouche Jones will be available to watch from the 26th March until the 11th April via Stream.Theatre.
