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.

Following unanimous, five-star critical acclaim and a thrice-extended, year-long run in London, Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman finally debuts on Broadway this October. This “fiercely gripping play” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times) is directed by Academy® and Tony Award® winner Sam Mendes and has won three Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director; three Evening Standard Theatre Awards, including Best Play and Best Director; and was named the Best New Play at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards.


for The Ferryman

This explosive, exhilarating drama is what a theater lover lives for.

Review by Peter Marks from The Washington Post

Astonishing. This is theater as charged and expansive as life itself. It takes your breath away.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times
