Audiences will be able to see a large cast of performers takes to the stage in Mojo at the Harold Pinter Theatre from October as the classic Jez Butterworth play returns to the West End. The show features performances from an array of familiar faces from television screens, including Brendan Coyle, Ben Whishaw, Rupert Grint and Daniel Mays, and also boasts a director in Ian Rickson, who first helmed the show when it premiered at the Royal Court Theatre back in 1995. So when theatre tickets become available it is likely to be a show that received plenty of attention.
Mojo takes us into the underbelly of Soho and with the rock ‘n’ roll scene as a backdrop we meet characters like Sweets (Grint), a minor Hood, as well as Silver Johnny, the latter being a rising star in 1950s Soho who could be on the verge of finding big success were it not for one man standing in his way – a local gangster called Sam Ross – and the manager of the Atlantic Club, a venue located in Soho, who wishes to protect him.
The story has been told on the stage and also made it to the big screen in 1997 with Butterworth penning the script for both.
Rupert Grint is likely to ensure plenty of interest in Mojo as he is well known for portraying Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series of movies, from Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2. He has also appeared in films like Thunderpants, Cherrybomb and Wild Target, in addition to television shows like Come Fly With Me. The revival of Mojo will be his stage debut.
Meanwhile, Ben Whishaw was recently seen in Peter and Alice at the Noël Coward Theatre, The Pride at the Olivier National Theatre and in the movie Skyfall as Q. Brendan Coyle is well known for appearing in television shows like Downton Abbey.
Mojo heads to the stage of the Harold Pinter Theatre in the autumn and it follows on for an equally as impressive piece in Chimerica by Lucy Kirkwood, which runs from August to October. The former runs from Tuesday 12th November 2013 (previews from Saturday 26th October 2013).
