The Ferryman New York Tickets
The Ferryman New York TicketsThe Ferryman gently handles a sensitive time in the recent memory of Northern Ireland. Set literally during a period known as the "Troubles," the musical takes the audience members to Amagh County, North Ireland. The protagonist, Quinn, deals with the recent unearthing of his brother, who was murdered by the IRA as a young man. Meanwhile, he must balance the wants and needs of his wife, children, nephew and sister-in-law as he fends off the threatening advances of IRA member Muldoon. The Ferryman was written by Jez Butterworth and is loosely based on the personal history of one of the original cast members, Laura Donnelly, whose uncle was shot and dumped by the IRA. The musical manages to blend the tensions of that time period with the warmth and togetherness of Irish family life.

In the US, the musical received nine Tony nominations. The end result was Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design and Best Costume Design.
