University of Adelaide Theatre Guild Inc.
proudly presents
JERUSALEM
by Jez Butterworth
Directed by Nick Fagan

"Happy St George's Day. Now kiss my beggar arse, you Puritans!"

It's St George's Day, the day of the Flintock Fair and the day officials from Kennet and Avon Council arrive to evict Johnny 'Rooster' Byron for good.  But this local charismatic hell-raiser has other plans.  At his ramshackle caravan kingdom, the Lord of Misrule, an ex-stunt driving Romany, entertains his band of undesirable scallywags with outlandish tales, unbelievable antics and an ample supply of booze and drugs.  Infamous for holding the most riotous parties this side of the Wiltshire border, Johnny is a hero to many but a villain to others.  

Pursued by the authorities, threatened by the local thug and reprimanded  by his ex, Johnny is not a man to be beaten down.  He fights against the hypocrisy of modern suburban life, inciting his own special brew of anarchy as he embodies the spirit of legendary giants of myth.

A raucous, earthy and ebullient yarn, Jerusalem paints an alternative rebellious vision of England's green and pleasant land.

Arriving in 2009, Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem played to critical acclaim, with awards and sell-outs in both the West End and later Broadway. The Guardian called it 'unarguably one of the finest plays of the twenty-first century.' It was seen as both a ‘state-of-the-nation’ drama and an elegiac lament for a mythic England. It was also one of the most side-splitting comedies to have graced the stage in years.
