Featuring Stephen Rea

The Public Theater, LuEster Hall, June 2-July 29, 2018

Named “the most shocking and relevant play on the London stage” by The GuardianCYPRUS AVENUE is the sold-out hit that has captivated audiences in Ireland and the UK. This summer, The Public is proud to present the Abbey Theatre and the Royal Court Theatre's co-production of David Ireland’s subversively funny and savage new play. Academy Award & Golden Globe nominee Stephen ReaChris Corrigan, and Amy Molloy from the original, critically-acclaimed cast are joined by Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo and Andrea Irvine.  

Eric Miller is a Belfast Unionist. He is exclusively and non-negotiably British. But nowadays he is worried he might be Irish. When Eric sees a likeness between his new-born granddaughter and the Irish republican leader, Gerry Adams, his sanity starts to unravel. Determined to defend his family and his heritage, Eric’s lifetime of ingrained prejudice and unsettled identity push him to the edge.

Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of London’s Royal Court Theatre, directs this searingly resonant dark comedy about one man trying to make sense of a radically changed world.
