On a beautiful St. George's day, Johnny 'Rooster' Byron is a wanted man. To some, he is a rustic pied piper, a demagogue of the woods, a powerful legend among men; but to most of the townsfolk, he is a drunkard who disturbs the peace and needs to be evicted from the land. However, Rooster has more to worry about: his son wants to be taken to the fair, a father wants to give him a serious kicking, and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol.
After its success in the West End, The Financial Times called it "a wonderful, rollicking, dark comedy about contemporary life in rural England."
