The savage black comedy that took Edinburgh by storm is coming to Auckland Arts Festival in March 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.
★★★★★ “Riotous… [a] brilliantly brutal satire.” — The Guardian
★★★★★ “Brilliantly feisty… outrageous and uproarious.” — The Times
“Explodes on to the stage… a theatrical hurricane.” — The Scotsman
