    The theatre experience of 2018. Award-winning Canadian screen icon Kim Coates (FX’s Sons of Anarchy) returns to the stage after almost thirty years—teaming up with two of Toronto’s leading theatre companies to present the national premiere of Jez Butterworth’s explosive masterwork. A pied piper tale for the Tarantino generation, Jerusalem is the story of aging daredevil Johnny “Rooster” Byron, purveyor of drugs, alcohol, mythic tales and sanctuary to the troubled teens of Wiltshire county. Come squat with Rooster deep in the heart of Rooster's wood, as he rails against the community council bent on eradicating him, bulldozing the land, and putting up condos. A bold new exploration of one of the most lauded plays of the past twenty years, described by Ben Brantley of The New York Times as  “a great frame-busting play that thinks big — transcendently big — in ways contemporary drama seldom dares”.

    Audience Advisories:  The production contains adult language and copious references to drugs and alcohol; may also contain traces of fairies, giants, ogres, spirits and other secrets of the English forest. 

    Jerusalem contains adult themes including drug use, drinking, and profanity, and is intended for audiences aged 14 and up. Discretion is advised.

    The performance will also feature the use of strobe lights, theatrical haze, and herbal cigarettes. 

    All Jersalem ticket sales are final; there are no refunds.
