New photos have been released featuring the Broadway cast of Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman. The production is now in previews and has an opening night set for October 21 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

The play stars original London cast members Paddy Considine, Laura Donnelly, and Genevieve O'Reilly, alongside Dean Ashton, Glynis Bell, Peter Bradbury, Trevor Harrison Braun, Sean Frank Coffey, Will Coombs, Gina Costigan, Charles Dale, Justin Edwards, Fra Fee, Fionnula Flanagan, Tom Glynn-Carney, Carly Gold, Cooper Gomes, Holly Gould, Stuart Graham, Mark Lambert, Carla Langley, Matilda Lawler, Conor MacNeill, Michael McArthur, Willow McCarthy, Colin McPhillamy, Rob Malone, Dearbhla Molloy, Bella May Mordus, Griffin Osborne, Brooklyn Shuck, Metta Mary Sofsky, Glenn Speers, Rafael West Vallés, and Niall Wright.


The Ferryman opened at the Royal Court in May 2017 before transferring to the Gielgud, where it ended its three-time-extended, yearlong run on May 19. The production has won three 2017 Evening Standard Awards, including Best Play and Best Director, and three 2018 WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director.

Set in rural Northern Ireland in 1981, The Ferryman takes place in the Carney farmhouse, 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 is designed by Rob Howell, with lighting by Peter Mumford, and sound and original music by Nick Powell.
