More Description

" "Mojo"] combines the verbal menace of Harold Pinter and the physical violence of Quentin Tarantino."--"Sunday Times"

" "Parlour Song"] is blissfully funny . . . combines the comic, the erotic and the downright disconcerting with superb panache."--"Telegraph"

" "The Winterling"] is written with all of Butterworth's characteristically high-octane flair, the text flashes with jokes, shines with images, and oozes menacing bonhomie."--"Tribune"

Jez Butterworth is one of Britain's most compelling and original playwrights. This new volume collects all of the acclaimed author's work written before "Jerusalem" the Olivier Award-winning "Mojo," a sly and vicious black comedy set in 1950s Soho clubland; "The Night Heron," a "funny, sad, haunting, and strangely beautiful" play about a group of outcasts gathered in the Cambridgeshire fens ("Daily Telegraph"); "Parlour Song," a hilarious investigation of cunning, paranoia, and treacherous desire; and "The Winterling," a menacing comedy thriller about a group of misfits waiting out the winter on a moor in southern England.

Jez Butterworth is the multi-award-winning author of "Jerusalem." He won the 1995 "Evening Standard" Award for most promising playwright and was awarded the E.M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2007. He also wrote and directed the film adaptation of "Mojo" (1998) starring Ian Hart and Harold Pinter, "Birthday Girl" (2002) starring Nicole Kidman and Ben Chaplin, and he co-wrote and produced "Fair Game" (2010) starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts.
