It was meant to be the glittering awards night where Jerusalem went up against Enron. But they were beaten by a play from a young, black female writer which had its world premiere on a tiny pub stage in South London. Katori Hall's The Mountaintop was the surprise winner of best new play when this year's Laurence Olivier awards were handed out last night.
