Archives - Jerusalem

by Jez Butterworth

Directed by Rosemary Bianchi

Friday 11th – Saturday 19th May 2012 in the Auditorium

A bold, ebullient and often hilarious play about the charismatic traveller and drunk, Rooster Byron.

The Barn will be one of the first non-professional theatres to stage this critically acclaimed show, which had a sold-out run in the West End last year and is now repeating its success in New York, where it has already garnered six Tony awards.

Set in present-day rural Wiltshire, its dark, often ribald humour chronicles the state of the nation and the conflict between individuality and political correctness.
