Another chance to see Bath's Next Stage Theatre Company's hit play Jerusalem
Bath’s Next Stage Theatre Company created a bit of a stir at the start of the year with their performance of Jez Butterworth’s hit play Jerusalem.
The company won the rights to perform the play ahead of anyone else in the country and well before it suddenly became the must-see show in London’s West End where people were queuing around the block to get tickets for it.
The result was that there was talk, even while Next Stage was deep in rehearsals, that the amateur company might not be allowed to perform it after all.
But Next Stage director Ann Garner worked flat out to persuade top brass in London that they should do it and she eventually won the day.

The play with Tim Evans in the lead was a huge success at the Mission Theatre in January.
Now it gets a re-run at the theatre from tomorrow until September 8.
In the play it is St George’s Day, the morning of the local county fair. Johnny Rooster Byron, local waster and modern day Pied Piper is a wanted man, embattled in the Wessex woodland.
Facing eviction from his dilapidated mobile home, plying his friends with drink and drugs, ducking and weaving to avoid outraged neighbours Rooster has little time to enjoy the annual pageant.
Jerusalem is a play that gives voice to the dispossessed and the disaffected with Rooster a shockingly familiar modern day Everyman, once again played by actor Tim Evans.
Appearing with Tim will be Poppy Harrison, Liz Wilson, Nicky Wilkins, Andrew Ellison, Dave Dunn, Tom Ash-Miles, Joshua Ward, Lydia Cook, Georgi Bassil, Steve Leanaghan and Louis Judge-Hodkinson.
Tickets for the show are £11/9 on 01225 428600 or the Bath Box Office on 01225 463362.
