The Ferryman

Starring Rosalie Craig, Owen McDonnell and Justin Edwards. 

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'.

  • Fantastic

    21 January 2018

    Really enjoyed The Ferryman. Excellent story and cast. Quite a long play, nearly 3.5 hours but worth it.

    21 January 2018

    Wow, what a theatrical ride it was at the Ferryman performance in January of 2018. The Whole Cast deserves an award as ensemble. The best large cast performance in a very long time. All were perfect in their own way. The story was intriguing and keep you guessing all the time. A final climax is worth keeping a secret.

  • Best Play in London

    21 January 2018

    A wonderful tour de force. Funny, troubling and eventful all at once. A long play but didn’t feel that way. A host of characters of different ages and animals. Top quality.
