Synopsis: John Ferguson is an urgent and powerful tale of faith and fear in a time of crisis. It’s set in a rundown farmhouse in County Down in the 1880s where John Ferguson lives by the word of God and believes there is a reason for everything. The Ferguson family are on the brink of eviction from their farm when a local man makes a proposal that could be the answer to their prayers, but as a series of devastating events unfold, the Fergusons find themselves tested to their limits… John Ferguson was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin in 1915, establishing Ervine as one of Ireland’s greatest writers.
