Due to widespread demand for tickets, Jez Butterworth’s epic new play The Ferryman will play at Gielgud Theatre in London until May 2018. Following a sold-out run at the Royal Court Theatre, it became the fastest-selling show in the theatre’s history. Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition), it has received unanimous critical acclaim--being called “an instant classic” (Independent) and “the hottest of hot tickets” (Guardian).
Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney farmhouse is a hive of activity with preparations for the annual harvest. A day of hard work on the land and a traditional night of feasting and celebrations lie ahead. But this year they will be interrupted by a visitor.
