Show Description

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. 

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.

Audience Advisory

There is one 5 minute pause between acts 2 and 3. Note that the performance will begin promptly at the scheduled curtain time. Late seating will be at the sole discretion of management.

The play is almost as exuberantly funny as it is powerfully theatrical, and its marvelous cast ... infuses the play with such life-affirming light that when, in the play’s explosive ending, darkness threatens to swallow them up, it comes as a shattering shock.

Its populous ensemble is a seamless unit, led with powerful feeling by Paddy Considine and Laura Donnelly, along with several other outstanding holdovers from the original London cast.... The performances are too good, right across the board, to single out all that merit recognition.

Masterfully directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes. In lesser hands, “The Ferryman” may have come off as pure hokum, but Mendes makes it absolutely entrancing, bringing out many intense, full-bodied performances, particularly from Donnelly, who brilliantly conveys Caitlin’s raw vitality, vulnerability and stifled rage. “The Ferryman” is certainly reminiscent of “August: Osage County,” another long-winded family melodrama that managed to pack a powerful punch. Many other plays are opening on Broadway this fall, but they are unlikely to match the excitement and finely-tuned ensemble acting of “The Ferryman.”
