Brendan Coyle and Rupert Grint for West End revival of Mojo
Preview by Jack Foley
DOWNTON Abbey‘s Brendan Coyle (aka Bates) and former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint are among the star-studded cast of a major West End revival of Jez Butterworth’s award-winning Mojo.
They will be joined by Daniel Mays, whose extensive credits range from Byzantium to Jimmy McGovern’s Common, and Skyfall star Ben Whishaw (aka Q).
Ian Rickson will direct the production, which will begin previews at The Harold Pinter Theatre on October 26, 2013 with tickets released for general sale in September 2013. Preview tickets go on sale today (July 26, 2013) to the Mojo priority mailing list.
Rickson and Butterworth previously collaborated on the play’s world premiere at the Royal Court in 1995.
Set against the fledgling rock ‘n’ roll scene of 50s Soho, this savagely funny play delves into the sleazy underworld and power games of London’s most infamous district.
Further information about this production, including final casting, full schedule and public on sale date, will be announced in September.
