Mojo (1997)

Mojo received its world premiere at London's Royal Court Theatre in 1995, where it won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. The Guardian hailed the play as "The Royal Court's most dazzling main-stage debut in years," and the Evening Standard called it "a jet-black comedy that arouses shudders of amusement and laughter." The play garnered Butterworth numerous awards including the Writers' Guild New Writer of the Year award and both the George Devine and Evening Standard awards for Most Promising Playwright. Mojo has since been translated into nine languages.

Jez Butterworth - Writer and Director

Born 4 March, 1969 in London, Jez Butterworth was brought up, with his brother Tom, in St. Albans and educated at Cambridge University. Together with his brother he wrote THE CENSUS MAN as part of Carlton Television New Writer Course. This led to their being commissioned in 1993 to make THE NIGHT OF THE GOLDEN BRAIN, a short film about a pub quiz team, (GOING UNDERGROUND series).

Jez then wrote his first stage play MOJO, which opened at the Royal Court Theater in 1995 and was an incredible critical and public success, with the play winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Awards. He then teamed up again with Tom to co-write CHRISTMAS (1996), a modern morality tale about a teenager, set in London, which was broadcast on Channel 4 and directed by Mark Munden. With MOJO, Jez Butterworth makes his debut as a feature film director.

"During the long process of writing the screenplay I made an exhilarating discovery: Mickey's guilt and Baby's pain are essentially private, silent, there for us to watch. This is what the film is about - so the story might be better told on film". -- J. Butterworth
