What is The Ferryman about?
Set during the height of the 'Troubles', the story centers on the farming Carney family, residing in rural County Derry. As they prepare to bring in the year's harvest, their peaceful idyll is shattered with the arrival of a visitor. Bringing troubling news of a prison hunger strike in which 10 republican prisoners starved themselves to death, the large family are faced with a choice; to take up the sword in aid of the prisoners or work the fields for the family.
The Ferryman is now playing at the Bernard B Jacobs Theater through to July 7.
