JERUSALEM JEZ BUTTERWORTH SCRIPT PDF

And every bit as much as all of that, it is Rooster pouring the milk in first when he makes a cup of tea. Rylance described Jerusalem as "satisfying a hunger in audiences for wildness and defiance. And so we feel the weight of his Englishness, its texture, its ancientness. In fact what I love about Jerusalem is everything I love about the English language; its wealth and its wildness, its illogicality, the strange, rousing music of our sentences. And in the character of "Rooster" Byron, we find an emblem of both England and the English language. This flexible, muscular, yet hobbling figure; an island of a man, fuelled and attacked from all sides.

And every bit as much as all of that, it is Rooster pouring the milk in first when he makes a cup of tea. Rylance described Jerusalem as "satisfying a hunger in audiences for wildness and defiance. And so we feel the weight of his Englishness, its texture, its ancientness. In fact what I love about Jerusalem is everything I love about the English language; its wealth and its wildness, its illogicality, the strange, rousing music of our sentences. And in the character of "Rooster" Byron, we find an emblem of both England and the English language.

This flexible, muscular, yet hobbling figure; an island of a man, fuelled and attacked from all sides. We see him now puffing out his chest to seem just that little bit larger, a man who legend tells us was once unstoppable, immense, capable of leaping lines of double-decker buses at Flintock fair.

But now, empire-depleted, he is about to be evicted from his ramshackle caravan in the woods, and his reputation has dwindled to one of famed debauchery, drug-dealing, the only man barred from every pub in the village. Where once men gasped and women swooned, now youths film him on their phones, drunk in the dirt, soaked in his own piss. Despite his reduced circumstances, there remains a defiance to Rooster, a faith that he will win out. Even faced with the disbelief of his gang of merry men, he continues to set down the legend of his own life: that he was conceived immaculately on a bullet; that he was born black-eyed, with his own cape and all his own teeth; his pure Gypsy blood; his encounter with the giant as big as a pylon who built Stonehenge ; the golden drum that will summon the ancient powers to his side.

Maybe there truly were giants and bullets and fairies and dragons. Perhaps, in all the fable and folklore, and in the fire and fathom of those eyes, Rooster might just be telling the truth of this land.

Jerusalem (NHB Modern Plays)

Mark Rylance: crank in a class of his own 14 Jul We talk about Tom Stoppard, who on the day we meet has given an interview saying he has forgotten how to write a play. Butterworth seizes on the story. Technique is not enough. A third brother, Steve, is a producer. He works both as a script doctor on films such as the forthcoming Asteroids, based on the Atari game and as main scriptwriter, for example on Fair Game, about CIA operative Valerie Plame. I always thought that was a wonderful thing to do — to be able to play two sports that basically involve a ball.
