A deeply resonant and poetic play set in rural England.
Jerusalem
(by the same author as The Night Heron) is funny, tragic,
and mysterious with a powerful Pan-like central figure.
Tradition and spirit inhabit the land as Dionysus rages against encroaching civilization.

Notes from the Director

In Myths to Live By, Joseph Campbell wrote: “The society that cherishes and keeps its myths alive will be nourished from the soundest, richest strata of the human spirit.” Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem is a contemporary incarnation of an ancient myth—a myth celebrating storytelling and featuring a central character, Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron, who is the embodiment of the Greek god Pan. On the surface, Johnny is a no-good drunk who sells drugs to teenagers and indulges in sexual exploits. But when we scratch the surface, we find a connection to nature and wildness that many of us crave. Johnny is a man who lives by his own advice: “Don't listen to no one and nothing but what your own heart bids.”

Johnny Byron’s camp becomes a haven for lost souls: wayward teenagers, a heartbroken pub owner, a lost professor, a failed plasterer who dreams of being a disc jockey, a young woman abused by her stepfather, and others. Amid this lost band of followers, Johnny weaves stories of greatness, and he listens deeply to those in need. He becomes both the scapegoat of the nearby village, as well as St. George, who slays the dragon to free the local villagers.

Jerusalem is an epic play about the people, culture, and landscape of England. But it is also an examination of the human need for home, for purpose, for freedom. As always, we are thrilled and grateful to share this heartfelt production with you.

Butterworth’s fourth play for the Royal Court was Jerusalem (2009), which won the Evening Standard Theatre Award and Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for the best play of 2009. Jerusalem opened on Broadway in 2011, with many of the original UK cast, and was nominated for a Tony Award.Butterworth’s newest play, The River, opened at the Royal Court on 26 October 2012, and it is currently in a limited run at Circle in the Square Theatre in New York City until January 25, 2015.

Music Director’s Notes

Jerusalem is a symphony for 14 actors. There are melodies, harmonies, and counterpoint in every scene and implied chords beautifully built by this cast. The music Natalie and I are playing is an addendum to that score.

Jez Butterworth places the titular William Blake/Hubert Parry hymn, a darkly comedic riff on Barry Dransfield’s “The Werewolf”, and the Padstow May Day folk tunes throughout the entirety of the play. These pieces, inspiration from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Six Studies in English Folk Song, and discussions with Cindy and the cast about the way the tenor of each scene shifts moment to moment from celebratory to mystical to foreboding all came together in the score you’ll hear today.

Natalie Catren’s flute playing (with other assorted instruments), her first hand knowledge about contemporary English life, and her dedication to embodying the sound of this world have been invaluable to this process. Thanks Natalie!

English folk music is inseparable from its pastoral environment. It is so much a part of our understanding of that culture that it feels present behind every Blake, Browning, and Coleridge stanza. In creating the soundscape of Jerusalem I have tried to illustrate this, searching for a sound that exists even in the silences; a sound from out in the trees.

—Jake Sorgen, Music Director and Composer for Jerusalem

 

Jake Sorgen (Music Director, Composer)

Jake Sorgen (Music Director, Composer) was music director for Awake and Sing at The Rogue Theatre, and has performed as a musician at The Rogue in Purgatorio and Betrayal.

Primarily a guitarist & saxophonist, Jake also plays mandolin, bass, and other reed instruments in a wide range of styles including American and European folk, jazz, contemporary improvisation, and free music. As a solo artist Jake has released two albums, Sudden Myth in 2012 and In Transit in 2013, as well as appearing as a featured artist on the avant-garde band BLOB’s 2010 release A Night At The Opera and has performed extensively throughout the Northeast.

Jake Sorgen’s music direction is supported in part by a generous gift from Bev & Bob Bechtel.

Natalie River Catren (Musician) was born in Norfolk and spent her childhood moving every two to three years, continuing this perpetual motion well into what most people would consider adulthood. A leaf on the winds of chance—driven by a strange cocktail of free spirit and existential angst—she recently made a dangerous but beautiful leap from Scotland to the desert southwest. Similarly itinerant in her professional endeavors, Natalie has gathered along the way a BFA in Painting and English Literature, an MA in Art History, a Licentiate in Flute Performance from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and a negligible horticultural certification from the Royal Botanical Gardens of Edinburgh. Last summer she participated happily as an actor in the Rogue Conservatory. Natalie is equally uncomfortable on either side of the Atlantic, and happier by far when acting, writing, painting or playing music. She hopes one day to live in a lighthouse.
