ULSTER AMERICAN: What to expect - 2


Jay is the Oscar-winning actor. Leigh is the ambitious director. Ruth is the young playwright with a gritty historical drama that is destined to make them the talk of Tinsel Town. With the shiny accolades of Hollywood within their clutches, the three rendez-vous to secure the play and discuss the nitty gritty – but when boundaries are broken, the night collapses into full-blown chaos. The show must go on!

Pushing the limits on identity politics, ULSTER AMERICAN is a savage satire exposing the fragile egos and abuses of power that run rampant in Hollywood. Harriet Gordon-Anderson (BOXING DAY BBQ), Brian Meegan (BOXING DAY BBQ) and Jeremy Waters (THE BIG TIME), reunite after Outhouse Theatre’s critically acclaimed 2018 season in this acerbic and brutally hilarious play.
