Jerusalem returns to the West End

Date Posted: 19/07/2011

Ian Rickson’s Royal Court Theatre production of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem is to return for a limited season in the West End from the 8th October to 14th January.

Now booking at the Apollo Theatre, the 14-week engagement follows the production’s Broadway run. Mark Rylance is set to reprise his Olivier and Tony Award-winning performance as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron, with direction by Ian Rickson.

Jerusalem is promoted as a comic, contemporary vision of life in our green and pleasant land. On St George's Day, the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron 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 and Troy Whitworth wants to give him a serious kicking.

The 2011 West End cast is set to include Mackenzie Crook (Ginger), Max Baker (Wesley), Alan David (The Professor), Aimeé-Ffion Edwards (Phaedra), Johnny Flynn (Lee), Geraldine Hughes (Dawn), Danny Kirrane (Davey), Charlotte Mills (Tanya), Sarah Moyle (Ms Fawcett) and Harvey Robinson (Mr Parsons).
