The Young Vic today announces an extension, due to popular demand, of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train. The critically-acclaimed production, directed by Kate Hewitt, now runs until Saturday 6 April, and will include a Relaxed Performance on Wednesday 3 April.

The cast includes Oberon K. A. Adjepong (Lucius Jenkins), Matthew Douglas (D’Amico), Ukweli Roach (Angel Cruz) and Joplin Sibtain (Valdez).

From Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis (The Motherf*cker with the Hat), comes this critically-acclaimed dark comedy about the American justice system and the contradictory nature of faith.

Inside the lockdown wing of Rikers Island prison, a frightened young man accused of murdering a cult leader is confronted with a charismatic born-again serial killer and a sadistic guard.  Will one man’s redemption lead to another’s damnation?
