Ulster American

Date: 10 Mar 2021

Set in the jungle of post-#MeToo show business, David Ireland’s ferocious comedy skewers the hypocrisy of men in power who trumpet their ‘wokeness’.

A talented female playwright, an Oscar-winning actor and an ambitious theatre director meet to discuss a play that promises glory for all. But as lines are crossed and the power of Hollywood looms, the love-in threatens to descend into mayhem.

Winner of the top prize, the Best of Edinburgh Award, at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a hit at Adelaide Festival, Outhouse Theatre Co (JohnGloria, The Flick) presents Ulster American‘s Sydney premiere. Shaun Rennie directs. Harriet Gordon-Anderson, Brian Meegan and Jeremy Waters feature.
