En Gielgud Theatre
Following a five star, sold out run at the Royal Court Theatre, Jez Butterworth's epic new play The Ferryman transferred to the West End. Directed by Sam Mendes, THE FERRYMAN 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. Please note: evening performances start at 7pm
