John Paul Jones
John Paul Jones is a new musical which tells the remarkable true story of the son of a gardener from Scotland, who became a hero of the American Revolution as the 'father of the American navy'. It is an uplifting, exciting and thought-provoking show. Jones's tale is one of triumph and adventure, love and loss, and the effect of one man's consuming ambition on those closest to him - with great music and a riveting storyline...
