Mojo at the Harold Pinter Theatre starring Rupert Grint and Ben Whishaw
Theatre: Harold Pinter Theatre, Panton Street, London, SW1Y 4DN
Harry Potter star Rupert Grint makes his West End stage debut alongside Ben Whishaw in a major new revival of Jez Butterworth’s award-winning play Mojo.
Ian Rickson revives his acclaimed Royal Court production of Mojo at the Harold Pinter Theatre, featuring a strong cast that includes Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey), Colin Morgan (Merlin), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter), Daniel Mays (Vera Drake) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall).
Director Ian Rickson reunites with the writer Jez Butterworth following Mojo’s original premiere at the Royal Court in 1995, and their recent success with Jerusalem.
Butterworth wrote and directed the film adaptation of Mojo in 1997, which featured the late writer, director and actor Harold Pinter.
Mojo won the Olivier award for Best New Comedy and is a savagely funny play set against the fledgling rock ‘n’ roll scene of 50’s Soho, delving into the sleazy underworld and power games of London’s most infamous district.
