Remaining time:

JERUSALEM BACK AT THE APOLLO

Making a welcome return to the West End from 8th October for a run until 14th January is the award winning play Jerusalem starring Mark Rylance and Mackenzie Crook.  The production will be staged at the Apollo Theatre with press night on 17th October.

After playing at the Royal Court, it made it's original West End debut in the spring of 2010 at the Apollo where it enjoyed a sell out run before going to Broadway.  Mark Rylance picked up the Tony Award for best actor, one of several awards he has recieved for his performance of Johnny Byron, a limping, caravan-dwelling ex-stuntman, all-round village rogue and modern-day Pied Piper.

Jerusalem is 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, local waster and modern day Pied Piper is a wanted man.  The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his children want their dad to take them 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.

The production will be directed by Ian Rickson currently enjoying great success at the Comedy Theatre with Betrayal starring Kristin Scott Thomas.  The rest of the cast is yet to be confirmed.
