The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth’s Olivier Award-winning play directed by Sam Mendes, is set to open on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre October 21 after beginning previews 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.
