Jezz Butterworth’s acclaimed West End and Broadway hit Jerusalem returns to the West End in 2022 with Mark Rylance reprising his starring role of ‘Johnny “Rooster” Byron alongside Mackenzie Crook reprising the role of Ginger.
Considered one of the finest actors of his generation, Rylance’s performance as the whizz-dispensing Wiltshire Falstaff ‘Johnny “Rooster” Byron’ garnered him an Olivier and Tony Award for Best Actor with Crook (The Office, Pirates of the Caribbean) also Tony nominated for his performance.
Jez Butterworth’s award-winning play premiered at the Royal Court in 2009; it transferred to the West End for record-breaking sold-out runs in 2009, 2010 and 2011 followed by a critically acclaimed season at the Music Box Theater on Broadway in 2011.
Jerusalem tickets are available from 6 April 2022 until 6 August 2022 at the Apollo Theatre, London.

The Council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants his dad to take him to the fair, Troy Whitworth wants to wreak his revenge and a motley crew of mates wants his ample supply of drugs and alcohol.
