An actor, director and playwright clash with explosive results in this outrageous, gasp-inducing black comedy – winner of the coveted Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Fringe Award.
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, this trio of artists all have ambitious thoughts and explosive opinions – and when a line is crossed their conversation quickly overspills into something much more dangerous.
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 destined for 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.
