Elmwood Cold Reading Series Ends Season with Jez Butterworth’s Award-Winning Play Jerusalem
Our next Elmwood Cold Reading:
Saturday, June 22nd 11:00 AM Free
“Jerusalem is a raucous, provocative play that tells of a modern, mythic English hero: Johnny “Rooster” Byron. During the course of this Tony-nominated play, Johnny tells tales, gets drunk, does drugs, dodges the authorities, and both charms and infuriates all that he meets. The play opens on the morning of the local county fair, and we discover that Johnny Byron is both the most and least popular man in town. The local authorities want to evict him, his son wants to spend the day with him, the town thug wants to teach him a lesson, and his ragtag group of friends want to party with him. With Jerusalem, playwright Jez Butterworth spins his own darkly comic, modern take on the classic English idyll.”– Playbill
The reading series will continue in September. Have a great Summer and we hope to see you on the 22nd.
