What Is The Ferryman About?

The Ferryman is set in Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney family are busy preparing for an evening of feasting and celebrations following the annual harvest day. But this year, they have a visitor.

Since its opening in London earlier this year, first at The Royal Court and then in West End, The Ferryman has been one of the most important plays of 2017, having been given 5 star reviews by all of the main theatre critics, including The Independent, The Stage, The Guardian, The Evening Standard, The Financial Times and so on. The Standard says 'it's a triumphant show that fully justifies the hype'.

  • The Ferryman is excellent!

    13 December 2017

    A wonderful play - full of drama, heartache & humour. Handled a difficult era from our past history with real honesty but sensitivity at the same time. Excellent castings - the junior members of the cast really play their parts well in particular. Would highly recommend.

  • The Ferryman

    13 December 2017

    The play provides a vehicle for excellent ensemble acting. One very seldom experiences such a varied collection of characters on stage at one time. The story provides an insight into the Irish Troubles of the last century though, as a farmer, I was not convinced by the portrait of a 20th century harvest on a 50 acre farm! The Irishness and the drinking and swearing might just have been a bit over the top but one was nevertheless swept along with the vitality of the acting and the verismo of the ending
