The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth’s Olivier Award-winning play directed by Sam Mendes, will begin performances on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre October 2. Following a record-breaking, sold-out debut at London's Royal Court Theatre last spring, The Ferryman transferred to the West End, where it ended its thrice-extended, year-long run in May.
Set in Northern Ireland in the early 1980s, The Ferryman takes place during the Carney farmhouse's annual harvest celebration and feast. The festivities are halted by the arrival of an unexpected visitor.
As previously reported, much of the London cast will join the show on Broadway.
