Peek into the lives of a motley cast of characters on the morning of an English county fair in award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem. Johnny "Rooster" Byron is a modern-day Pied Piper of sorts, regaling folks with fantastically impossible stories while ignoring his young son in order to sell drugs. Everyone wants a piece of Rooster, be it the local officials who want him arrested, or local thug Troy, who wants to give him a serious butt-kicking. With frequent allusions to the William Blake poem from which its title is derived, this comic, contemporary vision of rural life in modern England was nominated for both the Olivier and Tony awards for Best Play.

I see almost every production here and it is one of my favorite small theater companies. The acting was great as usual and the set was exceptional as usual. However, I was not wowed by the script or the content. Plus, I did not find it all that funny as others did. The second half also had quite a downer for an ending. I wish they had selected a different play. Susi, who is also a founder of SF Playhouse, was very engaging to watch. If you want a night out with "fluff" content and reminders of the 70's - go see this play.
About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse
The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
