The Ferryman

Following unanimous critical acclaim and widespread demand for tickets, Jez Butterworth’s epic new play The Ferryman is now booking to 19 May 2018 at the Gielgud Theatre. Directed by Sam Mendes, the play premiered at the Royal Court, becoming the fastest-selling show in the theatre’s history.

What Is The Ferryman About?

The Ferryman is set in Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney family are busy preparing for an evening of feasting and celebrations following the annual harvest day. But this year, they have a visitor.

Since its opening in London earlier this year, first at The Royal Court and then in West End, The Ferryman has been one of the most important plays of 2017, having been given 5 star reviews by all of the main theatre critics, including The Independent, The Stage, The Guardian, The Evening Standard, The Financial Times and so on. The Standard says 'it's a triumphant show that fully justifies the hype'.

  • Though provoking

    19 November 2017

    The play engages the audience with a story that was excellently executed. It explored the complexities of family life, through a political agenda, not of their making. It shows the ‘grey’ areas of family history, lies, dreams , hopes and desires.
