    of
    "Jerusalem"
    by Jez Butterworth

    Directed by Nicholas Kenny

    Fantastic roles for both the young and old 5 more roles to be cast


    The play by Jez Butterworth was a phenomenal success, winning Olivier Awards and a Tony For best new play.

    The play is set in a wood. On the morning of the local country fair, Johnny Byron (local waster and modern Pied Piper) is a wanted man. Local officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants his full attention, and his motley crew of friends from the new estate seeks escape from their drab lives.

    Jez Butterworth's gorgeous, expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy -Observer

    Roles:

    Johnny 'Rooster' Byron – Already cast 30-50s opinionated eccentric ex-daredevil and teller of fantastically improbable stories, he has a young son whom he rarely sees, and lives in a caravan in the local woods holding parties where he gets drunk and supplies drugs, some of them to under-age kids

    Ginger 15-30 – pathetic underdog of the group, he is older than the others who hang around with Johnny, never having grown out of the lifestyle. He aspires to be a DJ, but is in fact an unemployed plasterer

    Professor Already cast 40-70– vague and whimsical, the elderly professor spouts philosophical nothings and unwittingly takes LSD

    Davey – 15-30 abattoir worker who is best friends with Lee, and visits Rooster regularly for free drugs and alcohol. He can't stand the idea of leaving Wiltshire

    Troy Whitworth – local thug, the same age as Ginger; his stepdaughter, whom (it is strongly implied) he sexually abuses, goes missing in the play; he badly beats Johnny up at the end of the play

    Lee – 15-25, he enters the play having been hidden in the sofa asleep after about 15 minutes; he plans to emigrate to Australia the next day, despite having little money to take with him

    Phaedra Already cast 15-29 – Troy's stepdaughter, she is seen at the beginning of both Act One and Two singing the hymn Jerusalem dressed in fairy wings, and her disappearance is referred to; it is only at the end of Act Two that it is revealed that she is actually hiding in Johnny's caravan (IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO PLAY THIS PART PLEASE PREPARE THE HYMN JERUSALEM FOR THE AUDITION)



    Pea and Tanya Both Already cast 15-29– two local girls who emerge from underneath Johnny's caravan, having fallen asleep drunk there

    Dawn Already cast 30-40– Johnny's ex-girlfriend and mother to his child, though she disapproves of his lifestyle; having spent some time with him she relapses and kisses him, but there is no reconciliation

    Marky Already cast – Johnny's six-year-old son

    Wesley Already cast 40-60– the local pub landlord, he is involved in the festivities for St George's Day and has been roped in to doing the Morris Dancing
