The Ferryman "without a doubt the most powerful play I have seen since [King Lear]"
Usually when one arrives at the theatre to receive the news that the play they are going into has a running time of 3 hours, made up of 3 acts and just one 15-minute interval, they become wary and numerous questions flood their mind. This was exactly how it felt upon turning up at the Gielgud Theatre to see The Ferryman, but when I came back through those doors it was the furthest thing from my mind, all my questions had been answered. The play didn’t drag nor did I find myself getting restless, not that these were the things that foremost in my thoughts following the electricity that consumed the theatre after the final scene.

The Ferryman is as much about family dynamics as it is about The Troubles. The Carneys are an intergenerational extended family living and working on their farm during the height of The Troubles in the early 1980s.
