Traverse Theatre Company
Jay is the Oscar-winning actor taking the lead in a play that connects with his Irish roots. Leigh is the ambitious director who will do anything to get noticed. And Ruth is the Northern Irish playwright whose voice must be heard. The stage is set for great success but when the three meet, a line is crossed, and the heated discussion quickly escalates to a violent climax. Exploring consent, abuses of power and the confusions of cultural identity, Ulster American by David Ireland (Cyprus Avenue) is confrontational, brutally funny and not for the faint of heart.
Very strong language. Graphic violence. Strictly no latecomers.
