The Ferryman

Gielgud Theatre

Theatre Tickets


The Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End will be the next stop of Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman, which appears at the Royal Court Theatre prior to its West End run. The production is one of the most highly anticipated shows of the year, coming from a writer whose work has been celebrated around the world, and a stellar cast has been assembled to bring it to life in London.

Meanwhile, stage and screen director Sam Mendes, best known for the Bond films Skyfall and Spectre, plus the West End’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, takes on directing duties, making this an unmissable event.

The Ferryman relocates London audiences to Derry in the early 1980s and introduces to the characters that make up the Carney family, Quinn (Paddy Considine), Caitlin (Laura Donnelly) and Mary (Genevieve O’Reilly). Their farm has been the scene of hard work and planning in advance of the annual harvest celebrations, but this year’s festivities are going to take an unexpected turn.

Considine, Donnelly and O’Reilly appear as part of a cast that also includes Bríd Brennan, Turlough Convery, Fra Fee, Tom Glynn-Carney, Stuart Graham, Gerard Horan, Carla Langley, Des McAleer, Conor MacNeill, Rob Malone, Dearbhla Molloy, Eugene O’Hare and Niall Wright.

Jez Butterworth’s best known play is undoubtedly the smash hit Jerusalem, which appeared at the Royal Court Theatre and in the West End on numerous occasions since 2008, winning awards and bagging a Tony Award upon its trip across the Atlantic. The Ferryman is his latest opportunity to cement his status as one of the country’s most exciting playwrights.

The Ferryman runs at the Gielgud Theatre.
