    MULTIPLE FIVE STAR REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO BOOK JERUSALEM TICKETS NOW!

    The smash-hit five star show JERUSALEM returns to the West End. Whatever you do, don't miss it!

    JERUSALEM

    A comic, contemporary vision of rural life in our green and pleasant land, Jez Butterworth’s epic new play is wildly original. In part a lament about the erosion of country life and in part a rebuff to the antiseptic modern world, it features a landmark central performance from Mark Rylance as hellraiser Johnny Byron, 'a performance so charismatic, so mercurial, so complete and compelling that it doesn’t look like acting' (Evening Standard), and a superb ensemble cast including Mackenzie Crook who 'excels' as Johnny’s sidekick Ginger.

    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 a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol.
