Beschreibung

Would you mind if I asked you a troubling question?

Jay is the Oscar-winning actor taking the lead in a new play that connects with his Irish roots. Leigh is the ambitious director who will do anything to get noticed. Ruth is the Northern Irish playwright whose voice must be heard.

The stage is set for great success, but when the three meet to discuss the play's challenges and provocations, 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 is confrontational, brutally funny and not for the faint of heart.

David Ireland's recent plays include Cyprus Avenue which won the James Tait Black Award 2017 and Best Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2017. This edition is published to coincide with the world premiere at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in summer 2018.

He was Playwright-in-Residence at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast from 2011-12.

His first play What the Animals Say was produced at Òran Mór in Glasgow and transferred to the Belfast Festival. This was followed by Everything Between Us (Tinderbox Theatre Company/Solas Nua), which won the Meyer-Whitworth Award and the Stewart Parker BBC Award, The End of Hope, The End of Desire (Òran Mór), Half a Glass of Water (Field Day) Yes So I Said Yes (Ransom Productions), Can't Forget About You (Lyric, Belfast), Most Favoured (Traverse/ Òran Mór), The Hen Night (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), Summertime (Tinderbox), I Promise You Sex and Violence (Northern Stage), Blood Wedding (Dundee Rep Ensemble/Graeae) and Cyprus Avenue (Royal Court/Abbey Theatre, Dublin).
