Welcome to the highly resopected playwright Jez Butterworht's latest offering. What's the story? The Carney farmhouse is a preparing for the annual harvest. After a hard day's work they're looking forward to a traditional Irish night of feasting and celebrations. But this year is going to be very different, thanks to an unexpected visitor.

Skilfully designed by Rob Howell, The Ferryman has been ably and creatively developed by - and co-produced with - the highly respected organisation Sonia Friedman Productions. After a brilliant limited sell-out stint at the Royal Court theatre it is due to play at the Gielgud theatre once the smash hit The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time departs in early June 2017.

Butterworth has a long and illustrious history of collaborating with the Royal Court theatre, following an impressive success with his drama Mojo way back in 1995, a piece that won a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy plus a coveted award from the Evening Standard. 2013 saw the play hit the stage again, this time at the Harold Pinter theatre, directed once more by Ian Rickson. But it's Jerusalem that set the writer's name in stone as a serious talent, described as a "contemporary vision of life in England's green and pleasant land" starring the wonderful Mark Rylance as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron. After winning a host of awards it finally opened on Broadway in spring 2011 to rave reviews, attracting a Tony nomination for Best New Play.

In 2012 The River became an equally big hit. Now it's The Ferryman's turn, and the West End is buzzing with excitement. So are audiences. Grab tickets as soon as they come on board - we have it on good authority that this could well be a fast sell-out!

The Ferryman It’s great that enlightened producers are still producing new plays in the West End so all credit to Sonia Friedman Productions, Neal Street Productions and Royal Court Theatre Productions who’ve announced that they’re transferring Jez Butterworth’s THE FERRY MAN to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre, even before its premiere at the Royal Court on 24th April.
