Jez Butterworth's new play The Ferryman, which is currently playing in London's West End, will be transferring to Broadway later this year, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in October. The full cast and production schedule will be announced later.
Set in Northern Ireland in 1981, Butterworth's play is described as follows: "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."
