Hit play Mojo, which stars Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint, Merlin’s Colin Morgan, Downton Abbey’s Brendan Coyle and Skyfall’s Ben Whishaw, has extended its London run by two weeks.

The dark comedy, which also stars London stage favourite and Mrs Biggs star Daniel Mays and newcomer Tom Rhys Harries, will continue playing at the Harold Pinter theatre until 8 February. It had previously been booking until 25 January.

Written and directed by the team behind West End and Broadway hit Jerusalem – Jez Butterworth and Ian Rickson – Mojo is set in the sleazy underworld of 50s Soho where a group of small time crooks who think they are about to hit the big time with the discovery of a new rock ‘n’ roll star find their world falls apart when their boss is murdered.

When it premiered at the Royal Court in 1995, Mojo went on to win the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. When the new production opened earlier this month, Official London Theatre described it as “a treasure trove of British acting talent”.
