The Winterling

by Jez Butterworth

The Winterling Synopsis

In rural Devon, one man in a barn is visited by two men from London, intent on dealing with some unfinished business. Only two men will leave the barn. This is Butterworth's third play to be directed by Ian Rickson at the Royal Court - and as always, something wonderful is guaranteed...His debut play Mojo , about the gangster underworld of the rock'n'roll scene in 1950s Soho, caused a sensation at the Court in 1995. It marched off with all the awards - including the Olivier Award for Best Comedy, the George Devine Award and the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright - transferred to the West End, and was filmed with a cast including Harold Pinter, directed by Butterworth himself.

The Winterling Press Reviews

one of the most dazzling Royal Court debuts in years Time Out It's funny, it's sad, it's haunting and it is also strangely beautiful. Best of all, it is quite unlike anything you have seen before Daily Telegraph
