The Ferryman (Royal Court)

Rural Derry, 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.

“This family can take care of its own.”

Jez Butterworth returns to the Royal Court after The River and the multi-award winning Jerusalem with his new play The Ferryman. Director Sam Mendes makes his Royal Court debut.

Butterworth's writing offers an exquisite balance of humour and drama, revelry and mourning, surprise and expectation. It is a masterclass in every aspect of production and performance. It seems as though the Royal Court has once again made history with this incredible, deft creation.
