Babies and Bunnies Celebrate The Ferryman's 4 Tony Wins
Jez Butterworth's play amassed a quartet of trophies on Sunday night.
The stars of Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman celebrated the production's four Tony wins before their Tuesday, June 11, performance at the Jacobs Theatre.
The Ferryman is set in rural Northern Ireland in 1981. The Carney farmhouse 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 production earned Tonys for Best Play, Best Director (Sam Mendes), and Best Scenic and Costume Design (both for Rob Howell).
The 35-member cast is currently headed by three-time Tony nominee Brian d'Arcy James as Quinn Carney, Holley Fain as Caitlin Carney, Tony winner Shuler Hensley as Tom Kettle, and Emily Bergl as Mary Carney.
The Ferryman opened at London's Royal Court in May 2017 before transferring to the Gielgud, where it ended its thrice-extended, yearlong run on May 19, 2018. The production opened on Broadway on October 21, 2018, featuring original London stars Paddy Considine (Tony nomination), Laura Donnelly (Tony nomination), and Genevieve O'Reilly.
