Theater Trip to New York - The Ferryman
Art Seminar Group is pleased to offer a day trip to see The Ferryman on Broadway on November 14th. Direct from a stunningly successful run in London, acclaimed by both critics and audiences, this is a play and production not to be missed. The Ferryman is a “rich, serious, deeply involving play about the shadows of the past and the power of silent love” (Ben Brantley, NYT).
Following unanimous, five-star critical acclaim and a thrice-extended, year-long run in London, Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman, directed by Sam Mendes, finally debuts on Broadway this October. This “fiercely gripping play” (Ben Brantley, NYT) is directed by Academy® and Tony Award® winner Sam Mendes and has won three Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director; three Evening Standard Theatre Awards, including Best Play and Best Director; three WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Play and Best Director; and was named the Best New Play at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards. The stars of the London production (Paddy Considine, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly) will reprise their roles in New York, as will the key members (Director Sam Mendes, Lighting Designer Peter Mumford, Sound & Music Director Nick Powell) of the creative team.
Setting the scene: Northern Ireland, 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.
