About Cyprus Avenue
After its original sold-out run at the Royal Court and transfers to The Public Theatre, New York, Dublin’s Abbey Theatre and The MAC Belfast; David Ireland’s black comedy Cyprus Avenue returns for a limited four-week run.
Eric Miller is a Belfast Loyalist. He believes his five-week old granddaughter is Gerry Adams.
His family keep telling him to stop living in the past and fighting old battles that nobody cares about anymore but his cultural heritage is under siege. He must act.
The story of one man struggling with the past and terrified of the future.
“Without prejudice we’re nothing! If we don’t discriminate, we don’t survive!”
Cyprus Avenue won Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards and James Tait Black Prize for Drama in 2017.
