Jerusalem at the Royal Court

On Tuesday, I went along to the Royal Court to accompany the lovely Anna to see _Jerusalem_ by Jez Butterworth.

I was going to write up a review here, but there seems little point, as Anna’s sums it up so brilliantly:

> Byron, then, would be a gift to any actor, but few could inhabit him so completely as Mark Rylance. It is a stunning performance that leaves you in no doubt that a gaggle of hangers-on and fair-weather friends really would be utterly in awe of him. The audience certainly are.
