Jez Butterworth's love letter to lost rural England is a must-see

When Jerusalem came out in 2009 it literally revolutionised everything we knew about modern theatre. A three-hour long play about a subject that you can't sum up in a sentence, it wowed crowds all over the globe with no sign of slowing down since. - On St. George’s Day, the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron is a wanted man... for all the wrong reasons. Between council officials out to evict him, his son Marky wanting a trip to the fair, Troy wanting to give him a good kicking, and everyone else wanting Johnny for his amply supply of drink and drugs, this will become a day for the entire community to remember - Writer of the play Jez Butterworth was awarded with the 2011 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play + 2010 Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play It's fresh, provocative and daring. Jez Butterworth's masterpiece comes to the London stage for the time since its acclaimed Royal Court and West End runs. Over 13s only.
