Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, Jez Butterworth’s new play is a comic, contemporary vision of life in our green and pleasant land. Starring Mark Rylance and Mackenzie Crook, JERUSALEM transfers to the West End following a sell-out run at the Royal Court Theatre. The production previews from 28 January 2010 and will have a strictly limited 12-week run at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.
On St George’s Day, the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron, local waster and modern day Pied Piper, is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants his dad to take him to the fair, Troy Whitworth wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol
