Archived: Ulster American

As part of Auckland Arts Festival 2019

The Oscar-winning actor determined to connect with his Irish roots. The up-and-coming British director who dreams of success. And the Northern Irish playwright desperate for her voice to be heard.

Brought together for the staging of a West End play, each of these artists has ambitious thoughts and explosive opinions – and when a line is crossed, their conversation quickly turns into something much more dangerous.

Winner of the coveted Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award in 2018, David Ireland’s sensational new play is a no-holds-barred satire of art as a political flashpoint, in a climate heavy with abuses of power and consent, and the silencing of female voices.

Sold out in Edinburgh and on its way to New York, the show’s razor-sharp dialogue and viciously funny performances have turned genuinely shocking material into an uproarious smash hit. Ulster American is outrageous, confrontational, and gasp-inducing. See it and debate it now.
