This award-winning production shows the mysterious white-faced clown emerging from the circus ring for the very last time on Millennium Eve to tell his life story. It's a life of service and sacrifice which encompasses many of the actual events of a century, at times hilarious, at times heart-breaking. A must see for theatre lovers.
"I was not aware how powerful, moving, heartbreaking and interesting the story is and I was blown away by Richard Jordan's sensitive, revealing performance. It was a marvellous feat to be able to hold the stage for 90 minutes (with no interval) and keep the audience's attention which is testament to both the play and the actor. Mention must also be made to Kate Billingham for her subtle and thoughtful direction. I had to wipe away many a tear but it's a show that will stay with me for a very long time." Emma Payne, Chronicle & Echo Other
“What a journey! We were transported from the Caribbean to Africa, through the Mediterranean to the banks of the River Thames in the company of one of the most accomplished character actors you’re likely to see - anywhere. I wouldn’t have missed it for all the tea in China.” - Jan Palmer Sayer (Adjudicator at British All Winners Finals 2016)
