Synopsis: "The Ferryman is set in rural Northern Ireland in 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."
The play premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre, reuniting Mendes and Butterworth following their work on the latest James Bond film, "Spectre." The play then transferred to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre, where it received rave reviews from critics including our partner site LondonTheatre.co.uk, calling it a "complex, beautifully textured play".
