According to Bamigboye today, with a cast including Ben Whishaw, Daniel Mays, Robert Sheehan and Rupert Grint.

Not far off twenty years ago I loved this when I saw it at the Royal Court on a baking hot Saturday afternoon. It really was a sparkling debut for Butterworth, Seeing it at the Duke of York's (?) later with a different cast it was less successful with an audience who just didn't seem to appreciate it in the way they had done at the Court (and in front of me was a man with the noisiest coat that I've ever had to suffer listening to, these things rankle, decades later!)

(plus Here Lies Love at the Dorfman, the word from New York has been great on this one)

  A Noisy Coat sounds like an early Pinter. What sort of sound does it make?

Mojo as a play is great - tense, taut and quite thrilling (with the right cast)

The film, I agree, was ropey at best.  But a well-cast revival would be very welcome.

Grint and Whishaw and maybe to an extent Sheehan would be enough for this to get a West End revival at a theatre like the Pinter, Wyndhams  or the Duke of Yorks.

Out of interest, how good are the predictions of 'Baz'? Not sure I am a fan of a WOS website headline on the back of a Daily Mail rumour?

i think their pretty good!!

looks like mojo is confirmed with rupert grint and ben whishaw.


Grint will make his stage debut as a pill-popping petty crook alongside Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey’s Mr Bates) and Ben Whishaw, Bond’s latest gadget wizard Q.
Daniel Mays, who won acclaim for his portrayal of Ronnie Biggs in ITV’s drama Mrs Biggs, and in movies such as Made In Dagenham, completes the high-octane quartet who’ll lead a revival of Jez Butterworth’s scorching debut play Mojo, set in the Soho underworld of 1958.
