Following unanimous critical acclaim and widespread demand for tickets, Jez Butterworth's epic new play THE FERRYMAN is booking to 19 May 2018 at the Gielgud Theatre. Directed by Sam Mendes, the play premiered at the Royal Court, becoming the fastest-selling show in the theatre’s history.

Northern Ireland, 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.
