David Ireland

Published by Methuen

2 Male 1 Female

Winner the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award

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 and brutally funny

And not for the faint of heart

Published to coincide with the world premiere at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in summer 2018 for which it won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award
