Rupert Grint and Ben Whishaw star in the first significant revival of Mojo which impressed audiences at the Royal Court before a sell-out West End run in 1996, for which it won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
Mojo reunites two of British theatre’s great collaborators, writer Jez Butterworth and director Ian Rickson who, as well as the original production of Mojo, gave us the multi award-winning, West End and Broadway hit Jerusalem and The River. Rickson returns to Mojo fresh from successes with Old Times and Betrayal.
This fast-paced, brutally funny play focuses on gangsterly goings-on in Soho’s sleazy Atlantic Club. It’s summer 1958. Would-be rock ‘n’ roll star Silver Johnny is heading for fame, and his manager Ezra, who also owns the Atlantic Club, is protecting his protégé from the romantic advances of creepy local entrepreneur gangster Sam Ross.
Unfortunately for Ezra, Ross has ascertained that the only way to remove the opposition requires sawing Ezra in half, kidnapping Silver Johnny and throwing the fate of the Atlantic Club to the lions.
