Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman extends West End run
Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman will extend its West End run until January 6, 2018.
The play, which is set in Northern Ireland during the Troubles and is directed by Sam Mendes, premiered at London’s Royal Court earlier this year.
A West End transfer for the play, which stars Paddy Considine, Laura Donnelly and Genevieve O’Reilly, was announced before the Royal Court run had even begun.
It was originally booking at the Gielgud Theatre until October 7, 2017.
The Ferryman has designs by Rob Howell, lighting by Peter Mumford and music and sound by Nick Powell.
It is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Neal Street Productions and Royal Court Theatre Productions.
