The new cast has been announced for Jez Butterworth's play The Ferryman.

Lead Paddy Considine announced yesterday that he would be stepping down from the role of Quinn Carney. Repacing him is William Houston, alongside Maureen Beattie as Aunt Maggie Far Away, Charles Dale as Father Horrigan, Laurie Davidson as Shane Corcoran, Sarah Greene as Caitlin Carney, Ivan Kaye as Tom Kettle, Mark Lambert as Uncle Patrick Carney, Catherine McCormack as Mary Carney, Fergal McElherron as Frank Magennis and Glenn Speers as Lawrence Malone.

The rest of the original cast will continue in their roles.

The show, directed by Sam Mendes, originally opened at the Royal Court earlier this year and ran until June before transferring to the West End.

Butterworth's play received critical acclaim and follows a family living in rural Ireland during the Troubles.

The Ferryman runs at the Gielgud Theatre until 6 January 2018.
