IT’S ONLY ROCK & ROLL ... BUT WE LIKE IT!!!
Jez Butterworth’s jet-black comedy Mojo is set in the amphetamine fuelled atmosphere of 1950’s Soho, as rock’n’roll was exciting the youth of England.
With the pulse of this new music in their heads and a smell of easy money in their nostrils, this band of low-life wannabe gangster’s from Ezra’s Atlantic nightclub wage a vicious power war.
The prizes: Sliver Johnny a heart-throb, donned the next Elvis. With his lucrative voice and moves that send teenage girls into screaming frenzies.
Silver Johnny is a f--king commodity.
Convulsively foul-mouthed, fiercely funny and energised with a rock style rhythm and energy; Mojo is a sensational collision of Tarantino style violence and Jacobean revenge drama.

non-stop phyiscal enactment, mugging, twisting, gesturing in time with the rhythm ... always amusing and sometimes disturbing ... Show of the week
