After a successful Melbourne season Colin Friels, the acclaimed actor from stage and screen, is returning in his first solo show, Scaramouche Jones at Geelong Arts Centre from 16 to 19 October 2019.

He reflects on the extraordinary fortunes of his life, his journey that spans the furthest reaches of crumbling empires and the darkest episodes of the 20th century in his quest for a father and a homeland. He strips away his seven comic masks and reveals the heart buried deep within: his final confession.
Don't miss Colin Friels at Geelong Arts Centre from 16 to 19 October, when he delivers a performance that will be curious, comic, epic, tragic and totally unmissable when the comic masks of Scaramouche Jones are stripped away.
