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.
Tickets are on sale now for just £10.
Free-of-charge pre- and post-show talks:
Part of the Barn’s 2011/2012 season
Presented by The Barn Theatre Club
