Jez on The Ferryman: "Anytime you've got about two dozen people, it takes on its own energy and that energy can either become a nightmare of a show or like it did with this show, like it did with Jerusalem... it becomes this wistful, blissful band that you're part of, that has this free-willing quality that takes on a really magical air."
