Peek in on the lives of a motley crew of characters on the morning of an English county fair in award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth's "astonishing, invigorating, and defiant" (London Daily Mail) comedy Jerusalem. Johnny "Rooster" Byron regales folks with fantastically impossible stories while ignoring his young son in order throw raves and sell drugs. Everyone wants a piece of Byron -- including the local officials, who want to bulldoze his trailer home, and local thug Troy, who wants to give him a serious arse-kicking. Butterworth's big-hearted play pits the mythic forces of imagination against the crushing forces of mundane life, and was nominated for both the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Play. Don't miss the show's Midwest premiere at Chicago's Profiles Theatre.
