The Ferryman

After a sell-out run at the Royal Court Theatre, Jez Butterworth’s (Jerusalem, The River) eagerly-awaited new play The Ferryman transfers to London’s West End.

Set in rural Derry during the height of the Troubles, The Ferryman tells the story of harvest time at the Carney farmhouse. Buzzing with activity, the household gets ready for a hard day of work and a long night of celebration. But this year, there will be a visitor.

Directed by Sam Mendes (Spectre, Skyfall, American Beauty, Revolutionary Road), this ambitious production boasts a company of 38 performers headed up by multi-award-winner Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum, The World’s End), and features Genevieve O’Reilly (Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, The Secret, An Honourable Woman) and Laura Donnelly (Sugar Rush, Casualty, The River).

Writer Jez Butterworth is considered among the UK’s greatest living playwrights.
With people queuing for 12 hours for tickets to Jerusalem and The Ferryman at the Royal Court selling out in record time, tickets to the transfer of Butterworth’s latest offering are sure to be like gold dust. Playing for just 16 weeks at the Gielgud Theatre, book your tickets to The Ferryman today!

  • Excellent performance

    22 July 2017

    A play with real depth, everyday mysticism, building low-level tension and intrigue right up until it's shocking ending. The quotidian setting in the fairly recent past makes for a play the builds subtly through the electricity of political tension and interpersonal interaction. Highly recommended.

  • Outstanding cast and brilliantly directed.

    22 July 2017

  • Brilliant - stunning performances

    22 July 2017

    Most natural performances I have ever seen in a theatre production. The whole cast were brilliant. Had me engrossed from start to finish. Could watch it again now. Well done all concerned.

  • Just brilliant

    21 July 2017

    This was so brilliant: funny, sad and everything in-between. I took my 14 year old god-daughter who had a very basic understanding of the Irish history and she loved every minute. I would see this again!
