He is an outsider, disparaged by public institutions. He is called “the Rooster”, but his name is Johnny Byron and he’s a living legend, a famous drug dealer, the soul of any party, but also the terror of decent people’s neighbourhoods – victims of his aggressive acts triggered by the abuse of narcotics.
Through an ingenious textual game, fluctuating between the Biblical landscape and the miserable suburbs of contemporary England, the play “Jerusalem” depicts an overwhelming space located at the border between the rough reality and the carnival setting painted in the medieval imagination, portraying a magnetic character in which the Christian resemblance and the profile of a drug addict, defeated by the hostile society surrounding him, intertwine to confusion. The universe portrayed by playwright Jez Butterworth, inspired by the contemporary society of suburban England, but recognisable in any other urban space, brings a perspective that is both aggressive and tender, violent and sensitive on the collective hypocrisy of today’s society, which prefers to ignore uncomfortable realities.
Bogdan Sărătean’s directing vision, inspired by Jez Butterworth's modern approach, not recommended to puritans, provides an image over the existential context typical to suburbs – drug consumption, obscene language, acts of cruelty ignored by justice –, drawing at the same time a picture of all current social tensions.
