The Ferryman

Until May 19, 2018

Following a successful run at The Royal Court, Jez Butterworth's much anticipated new play transfers part and parcel to the West End's Gielgud Theatre. Promising to be as monumental as 2009's Jerusalem, The Ferryman takes us back to 1980's Northern Ireland, into the lives of a rural Derry family on the eve of their harvest supper. When an uninvited visitor arrives with distressing news, they face a stark choice between duty and family, the individual or the whole.

Located on Shaftesbury Avenue, The Gielgud Theatre is a West End theatre which was designed by W.G.R Sprague and first opened in 1906 as the Hicks Theatre, after Seymour Hicks. In 1909, Charles Frohman took over the management of the theatre and it was named the Globe Theatre for 85 years. In 1994 it was renamed the Gielgud Theatre in honour of John Gielgud, as the Shakespeare's Globe was being constructed on the South Bank. Since 2006, Delfont Mackintosh Theatre have operated the Gielgud.
