THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 24TH APRIL 2010
Following a sell-out season at the Royal Court Theatre Jez Butterworth's comic look at life in England, Jerusalem, comes to the Apollo Theatre in the West End for a 12 week run. Featuring Mark Rylance as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron - a role which saw him take Best Actor at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards last year - and his best mate Ginger, played by Mackenzie Crook (of The Office fame), the backdrop is the "green and pleasant land" of rural England. It's St George's Day, the morning of the local fair and Johnny's son wants his dad to take him to the fair. The witty script sees "opinionated eccentric" (The Telegraph) Johnny on the run from his children, the local council, and a man who wants to beat him up and his mates, who are after his ample supply of drink and drugs. A very contemporary vision of rural life inspired by Butterworth's real-life experiences farming in Somerset.
