Rupert Grint, Ben Wishaw and Daniel Mays star in a revival of Jez Butterworth’s electrifying mobster comedy Mojo. Originally opening at the Royal Court in 1995, Mojo is an Olivier Award-winning play directed by Jerusalem’s Ian Rickson. Featuring an all-star cast including Brendan Coyle and Colin Morgan, this is not a show to be missed!

Ian Rickson (Jerusalem) directs an all-star cast in an electrifying revival of Jez Butterworth’s rock ‘n’ roll comedy Mojo. First performed at the Royal Court in 1995, and also directed by Rickson, Mojo received rave critical acclaim, scooping the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Now, the production returns to London for a savagely funny run at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre.

Set against the backdrop of 1950’s Soho, Mojo delves into the sleazy underworld of London’s most infamous district, unlocking the power games that play out. Taking place in the sordid Atlantic Club, we are introduced to Sweets and Potts, who wait outside a meeting of their boss Ezra and a rival nightclub owner who wants to buy Silver Johnny, a teen heartthrob and their club’s new find. When their conversation takes a grizzly turn, the pair are left in trouble. Soon, the club’s employees arrive and are forced to take the next steps before the gangsters arrive…

Written when Butterworth was just 25, Mojo is a hilarious and dark character study of a bunch of outcasts forced together by a dire situation. Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) makes his stage debut as amphetamine-obsessed Sweets, alongside Ben Wishaw (James Bond) as the psychotic Baby, Daniel Mays (Made in Dagenham, Mrs Biggs) as Potts, Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey) as Mickey, Colin Morgan (Merlin) as Skinny and Tom Rhys Harris as Silver Johnny.

Showcasing a stellar cast at the top of their game, Mojo is sure to be an extraordinary hit. Directed by Dickson, the production features lighting design by Charles Balfour, sound design by Simon Baker and music by Stephen Warbeck. Receiving critical acclaim on its initial run, this is your opportunity to catch this modern revival at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre, opening October 2013 for a limited season.

Performance dates:
16 Jan 2014 - 08 Feb 2014
Running time:
2 hours 40 minutes
Harold Pinter Theatre (See map)
Audience Notes:
Fans of the various star actors will love seeing this heady combination live on stage. Those who enjoyed Jerusalem and The River will enjoy seeing one of Butterworth’s first plays. Mojo features strong themes of violence and drug abuse, and carries an age recommendation of 16 and up.
