What's it all about?
Ben Whishaw, Rupert Grint and Downton Abbey's Brendan Coyle star in the first major revival of Jez Butterworth’s Mojo, which wowed at the Royal Court prior to a sell-out West End run in 1996.
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, it reunites two of British theatre's great collaborators, writer Butterworth and director Ian Rickson.
As well as the original production of Mojo, this dynamite coupling brought us the multi award-winning West End and Broadway phenomenon Jerusalem and the critically acclaimed The River.
What's the story?
This fast-paced, savagely funny play centres on gangsterly goings-on in Soho's Atlantic Club.
It's summer 1958. Would-be rock 'n' roll star Silver Johnny is heading fameward, and his jealous manager Ezra, who owns the Atlantic Club, is finding that protecting his protégé from the amorous advances of creepy local gangster/entrepreneur Sam Ross is becoming a full-time job.
He's about to find out that Sam Ross really isn't a man who takes 'no' for an answer. In fact, Ross has determined that the only way to remove the opposition involves sawing Ezra in half, kidnapping Silver Johnny and throwing the fate of the Atlantic Club to the lions.
Who's in it?
With plenty of land between him and the end of the Harry Potter franchise, Rupert Grint is set to banish the spectre of Ron Weasley in his first major adult stage role. That said, his work as Ron was nonetheless instrumental in Rupert’s Mojo casting.
'I'd seen the Potter films with my daughter and always thought Rupert was truthful as Ron Weasley,' Ian Rickson said. ‘There's something ordinary and centred about him, and in this world of Mojo you want that grittiness.'
Mojo's remaining ensemble cast is particularly strong, featuring Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, The Hour, Peter and Alice), Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey, The Weir) and Daniel Mays (Made in Dagenham, Mrs Biggs, The Winterling).
