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 best play of the 21st Century
Riveting story, wonderful directing by Sam Mendes and brilliant acting, by a faultless cast!
Jillian London Box Office customer
Sensitive narrative. Family centred.
Susan London Box Office customer
I don't think I actually breathed during the first act. I cried during the second. This play requires you invest your total attention for nearly 3 hours. If you do, you will come out a changed person. I cannot recommend this enough.
Carol London Box Office customer
Fabulous heartwarming and poingnant
fran London Box Office customer
tragic but great
Great performances but the writing is perhaps slightly too tragic. However, very thought provoking and God portrayal of the Troubles
Keith London Box Office customer

It was every emotion whilst watching the Show happy, sad, angry. Could not take my eyes off the action for a minute so much happening. Very funny at times laugh out loud and then you wanted to cry.The young actors were brillant I did not know anything about this play as I did not have a chance to read any reviews but really enjoyed it I would go again

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.Read more
