Overview

Silver Johnny is the new singing sensation, straight out of a low-life Soho clubland bar in 1958. His success could be the big break for two dead-end workers in the bar, if they play their cards right and trust the owner of the place to make a good deal with the local money mogul.

Overview

Silver Johnny is the new singing sensation, straight out of a low-life Soho clubland bar in 1958. His success could be the big break for two dead-end workers in the bar, if they play their cards right and trust the owner of the place to make a good deal with the local money mogul. Before they can dream what to do with all the money they'll make, the owner turns up dead, Silver Johnny disappears, the second in command takes over the bar and power positions are juggled about. Going through the uppers and downers filched from pocketbooks, and trying to keep a lid on the precocious anger of the dead owner's son, the band of losers figures out the law of the streets and who killed the boss, but not in time to save one of their own, and perhaps their souls.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
The language, blunt and coarse and often hilarious, pours out of the characters with the force of the blaring jukebox rock that forms a leitmotif for the dark, violent action.
Daily Mail
Brilliant might cover it.
Observer
This is Beckett on speed, savagely funny, in fast forward, with no time to wait for Godot...

    Can't Stop Thinking About 'Mojo'

    The back cover of this play tells you that Jez Butterworth could be another Mamet, Pinter, or Tarantino. While like these others his language is dynamic, his characters and plot twisted and rich, Butterworth is very much his own man. The man writes characters that work on so many different levels. They are hilarious, pitiful, and deadly all at once. You're not sure how to feel for them, but you can't help but be fascinated by them. The plot is a classic chain reaction of explosions. Each new development in the story setting off the next. Comedy, horror, and testosterone are pumped out at heavy levels. Butterworth uses the London cockney language like a razor to carve his way through the flesh and souls of his characters. Read this book. Re-read this book. See this play.
