Nominated for 6 Tony Awards including Best Play! Tony and Olivier Award-winning star Mark Rylance (La Bête, Boeing-Boeing) recreates his wildly acclaimed, multi award-winning performance as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron on Broadway in the Royal Court Theatre production of Jez Butterworth's universally heralded new play, Jerusalem. In the woods of South West England, Johnny 'Rooster' Byron, former daredevil motorcyclist and modern-day Pied Piper, is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants to be taken to the country fair, a stepfather wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of friends wants his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. Directed by Ian Rickson (from the acclaimed Broadway production of The Seagull), Jerusalem is the winner of the 2009 Evening Standard and London Critics' Circle Awards and the 2010 Writers' Guild of Great Britain Award for Best Play.
