Following a record-breaking, sold-out debut at London's Royal Court Theatre last spring, The Ferryman transferred to the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End, where it ended its thrice-extended, year-long run in May. The production won three 2018 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director, along with a number of Evening Standard Awards and a U.K. Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play.
