At St Luke’s, we’re blessed to have many creative and artistic members in our community. Justin Butcher, our choirmaster and musical director, is a man of many talents – actor, musician, playwright, author, organiser of the recent Bethlehem Unwrapped festival, and much more. If you’d like to see Justin wearing one (or two) of this other hats, you have an opportunity this weekend. He’s taking his acclaimed one-man play Scaramouche Jones to the Pleasance Theatre, just around the corner from St Luke’s, on 25-26 January.
Justin wrote and stars in the play, which has been a big hit when previously performed by Justin and, on other occasions, by the late, great Pete Postlethwaite.
It’s a stunning piece of theatre – but don’t take our word for it. The Times called it, ‘A fascinating, poignant, funny play’; The Guardian described it as, ‘A mesmerizing piece of storytelling theatre’; and the British Theatre Guide declared it, ‘A masterpiece of solo magic realism, impeccably written, perfectly performed’.
