Network Theatre Company presents:
By Jez Butterworth, directed by Helen Mason
Welcome to England’s pleasant pastures, and to St George’s Day at the annual Flintlock fair. This may be England’s green and pleasant land, but there is definitely trouble in paradise.
Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron, lives ‘off grid’ in a caravan in the woods, and supplies free drugs and alcohol to Flintock’s youngsters, all much to the annoyance of the residents of the new estate. Is he hero or villan? Environmentalist or society drop out? Today he is a wanted man. What will the next 24 hours hold?
Both dark and comedic, Jerusalem is definitely not for the faint hearted. It is loud, in your face, and full of sex, drugs and rock and roll. This is a tale of rural England where modern day suburban reality collides with ancient myth and legend.
An amateur production in arrangement with Nick Hern Books
