1958. Soho. Ezra’s Atlantic Nightclub.
Silver Johnny is a rising rock ‘n’ roll star. Until he disappears, and
Ezra is murdered. The men of the Atlantic struggle through the following day;
in fear of their culture, their lives, and each other.
Mojo is a slick black comedy set in the Soho clubland of the 1950s. It
first premiered at the Royal Court in 1995, where Jez Butterworth’s new play
The Ferryman will premiere in April 2017, directed by Sam Mendes.
Mojo won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and earning
writer Jez Butterworth the George Devine Award and Evening Standard Theatre
Award for Most Promising Playwright.
“The main reason for doing it – and it’s taken me a while to work this
out – is that it was a really, really good play. There aren’t that many of them
around, so it’s worth doing one when you can.” Ian Rickson, director of 2015
