Get tickets now to “the most critically acclaimed play of the season” (Rolling Stone). The Chicago Tribune calls The Ferryman “a sprawling, Shakespearean masterpiece and the best new play of the year.” Written by Jez Butterworth and directed Sam Mendes, this “new, instant and monumental classic” (HuffPost) has been ranked on more “Top 10” lists than any other show. New York Times critic Ben Brantley says, “It’s the Broadway production of the year.”

It's 1981 in Northern Ireland, and 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. The Hollywood Reporter says, “This crackling thriller positively thrums with life and love. It will leave you breathless.” And The New Yorker raves, “As you sit in the audience, you know you are watching theatre history happen.” Don’t miss The Ferryman — “the must-see drama of the year” (Time Out).

The Ferryman is 3 hours 15 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission and one 5-minute pause between Acts 2 and 3.

Recommended for audiences as least 10 years of age. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
