U.S. PREMIERE OUTSIDE OF BROADWAY OF THIS IRISH THRILLER


“…at once a shivery suspenser, a hearthside family portrait, a political tragedy and journey across mythic seas.”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times


“This crackling thriller positively thrums with life and love. It will leave you breathless. This is rich, full throated theater not to be missed.”

The Hollywood Reporterr

DIRECTED BY KRISTIANNE KURNER

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOW

THE FERRYMAN takes place in Armagh, 1981 during the heart of The Troubles. The Carney farmhouse in Northern Ireland 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 FERRYMAN is the winner of the 2019 Tony Award and universally acknowledged as one of the greatest plays of the modern era. The play won the Evening Standard Theatre Award and the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play during its West End run and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for Best Play for its Broadway run.
