The Ferryman Toasts 100 Performances With a Larger-Than-Life Goose Cake
Jez Butterworth's play is directed by Sam Mendes.
Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman celebrated its 100th performance on Broadway with a post-matinee party on January 16, where the centerpiece was a larger-than-life cake shaped like one of the production's central cast members, a goose.
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. Sam Mendes directs.
The play also stars original London cast members Paddy Considine and Laura Donnelly, alongside Catherine McCormack, 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 cake was created by City Cakes.
