Reviews

"An instant modern classic" - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph FOUR STARS: "A welcome blast of bracing fresh air. Tender, touching, and blessed with both a ribald humour and a haunting sense of the mystery of things." - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph FOUR STARS: "Jerusalem is a bold, ebullient and often hilarious State-of-England or (almost) State-of-Olde-England play." - Benedict Nightingale, The Times "One of the most exciting new plays in ages." - Ben Brantley, New York Times "Magnificent... a great frame-busting play that still exists solidly within a conventional framework. Jerusalem could have been written in almost any year from the 1920s onward. Yet this work takes you places -- distant, out-of-time places -- that well-made plays seldom do. And it thinks big -- transcendently big -- in ways contemporary drama seldom dares." - Ben Brantley, New York Times "Jez Butterworth's gorgeous expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy." - Susannah Clapp, The Observer FIVE STARS: "An invigorating, yelping, defiant portrait of 21st century shires England." - Quentin Letts, Daily Mail FOUR STARS: "A wonderful, rollicking, dark comedy about contemporary life in rural England." - Sarah Hemming, Financial Times FIVE STARS: "Hilarious and/or gripping throughout." - Caroline McGinn, Time Out London "Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem is one big, messy, exciting, long play." - Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle -An instant modern classic- - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph FOUR STARS: -A welcome blast of bracing fresh air.
