Jerusalem extends 1 week to 22 Aug at Royal Court

Jez Butterworth's new play Jerusalem, has been extended by one week to 22 Aug 2009.

The play opened at the Royal Court Downstairs 15 July 2009, following previews from 10 July to great notices from the popular press: THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "A wonderful, rollicking, dark comedy." THE GUARDIAN says, "Perfectly judged production." THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Rylance’s is an astonishing performance." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "One of the must-see events of the summer."

Directed by Ian Rickson, the cast includes Mark Rylance & Mackenzie Crook

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.

Looking for the best seats...
