After a short run at The Royal Court Theatre - where tickets sold out in just 24 hours - Jez Butterworth's epic new play The Ferryman will be transferring to the West End at the Gielgud Theatre. The play also sees a return to the West End from multi-award winning and internationally-acclaimed film and stage director, Sam Mendes.
Butterworth, whose plays include Jerusalem, Mojo and The River, previously collaborated with Mendes on the scripts for Spectre and Skyfall from the Bond franchise. The Ferryman will be the sixth of Butterworth’s plays to be premiered at the Royal Court Theatre and marks his fourth collaboration with Sonia Friedman Productions.
The show will run for 16 weeks from 20th June - 7th October 2017.
