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!

  • Heartfelt interpretation and excellent performance

    27 June 2017

    After getting your head around some very strong Irish accents the level of the acting is totally mesmerizing for the whole 3.5 hours. All of the actors gave a wonderful interpretation of their role and the children were real darlings! I would thoroughly recommend it for an extremely enjoyable and well spent evening's entertainment for a very wide audience

    27 June 2017

    A power story and brilliant production, but about 20 minutes too long, in my opinion.
