About the Show:

It’s 1981 in Northern Ireland, and the Carny 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.

Written by Jez Butterworth and directed by Sam Mendes, THE FERRYMAN is “a sprawling, Shakespearean masterpiece and the best new play of the year” (Chicago Tribune). The Hollywood Reporter says, “This crackling thriller positively thrums with life and love. It will leave you breathless.”
