Saw one of the finest plays I have ever seen on Saturday.. Can’t wait to receive the script and relive it..
After it transfers to the west end I suspect it will transfer to Broadway..
I’ll see it again when it returns in 2019.. Optimistically



Title, please? :)


The Ferryman.. A new play written by Jez Butterworth and directed by Sam Mendes..
Set in rural Northern Ireland (County Armagh) in 1981, during the troubles.. while the hunger strikes were on-going..
Paddy Considine plays Quinn Carney, a former IRA man who has now settled down with his family on a farm..

The month long run sold out in 1 day... six months ago, long before the cast had been announced.. due to Butterworth's reputation

It has finished now.. but will transfer to the West End in June.. (until October) Broadway next year.. Perhaps

22 Characters.. Plus a goose a rabbit and a baby..

Thank you for the eleboration, Mr Snips. That sounds (and looks) very good indeed.

You’re very welcome..
It was an excellent production.. with a great attention to detail and.. as the photos demonstrate.. a superb set with wonderful lighting..

I always buy the script to read at home but sadly they had sold out..
Managed to order one and I'm now awaiting it's arrival with keen anticipation..

Wow, very evocative photos. Thanks for the information, Snips. I'm intrigued-- maybe I can find reading copy of The Ferryman through the library.

And my heart goes out to Manchester. I enjoyed my visit there a few years back and I have wonderful memories of the city. I stayed in a hotel a block away from the stadium and walked past it every day. I hate to think that it's become a site of horror and heartbreak.

The whole thing is such a tragic waste.. There are still people waiting to find family members..
It's on everyone's mind here..

Mel.. If there is even a slight possibility that you might see this play on stage one day.. then I would advise against reading the script beforehand..
Also.. The production company that are behind it sometimes negotiate to have certain plays broadcast in cinemas around the world.. Via NT Live.. You never know !

One such example is ‘Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ which we saw in London recently with superb performances from Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill..
It will be broadcast live in the USA on June 25 and 28..

Is this near you Mel..?

Yes, I've seen some theatre plays broadcast in the cinema here, from The Globe. High prices, but worth it still.

It's not yet available through the library-- and I'd rather see it than read it anyway, so with any luck perhaps it will have a cinema broadcast some day.

As a matter of fact, it is very close to me, and I go there often!
Imelda Staunton is indeed a very fine actress. I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks Triple Snip, sure sounds interesting.

When I heard the news from Manchester had to think of Gordon of course ... where is the ol' 49-er?

My guess is that he's at home looking after his garden gnome. Would be nice of him to stop by the forum every once in a while. Just saying.

Good morning. I'm working this Saturday. I now have so little time left in my full time job that I'm grateful even for the Saturdays working.
