Maureen is set to play Aunt Maggie Far Away in Jez Butterworth's production of The Ferryman at London's Gielgud Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue, when a new cast take over from the original company on October 9th.
Set in rural Derry in Northern Ireland in 1981, the Carney family's 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 ghost from the past.
The Ferryman won widespread critical acclaim when it opened at the Royal Court earlier this year, becoming the fastest selling show in the theatre’s history.
This phenomenal success has continued at the Gielgud Theatre where it has been playing to sold-out houses, with early morning queues on Shaftesbury Avenue for the £12 day seats each day.
Please note the earlier than usual performance start times: Monday-Saturday 7pm, Wednesday & Saturday 1.30pm (Show duration: 3.25 hours)
Age Guidance: 14+. Contains strong language.
The Ferryman, directed by Sam Mendes, will run at the Gielgud Theatre until 6 January 2018.
