An ‘In-Yer-Face’ Drama by Jez Butterworth
24th - 29th April 2017
“My dad said he jumped buses. Horseboxes. Jumped an aqueduct once. He was gonna jump Stonehenge but the council put a stop to it.”
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 to go to the fair, a vengeful father wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. Tender, touching and blessed with both a ribald humour and a haunting sense of the mystery of things, Jerusalem rolls in unpredictable gusts from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy.
“Unarguably one of the best dramas of the twenty-first century” The Guardian
