The Ferryman is the first major play from Jez Butterworth since his acclaimed multi-award-winning, smash hit and now modern classic Jerusalem

It's set in 1981 in rural Northern Ireland, against a back drop of the Troubles and presents a gripping family saga

A family with a dark secret at its core ...

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

The Ferryman premiered at the Royal Court, London, in April 2017


"Absolutely incredible, still in shock"

"This is all I want from theatre. What a play. A Masterpiece"

"Epic in every sense. Mythical, passionate storytelling"

"The Ferryman is the best play I've ever seen! I can't stop shaking! It's truly, literally breathtaking!

"This is the best play I've seen for years ... Totally captivating from the start ... Plays this good don't come around very often. It blew me away"

"Made me laugh, gasp (in shock and joy!) and my heart break"
