Why See Ulster American?
An American, Englishman, and Irishman all walk into a bar
Returning to the London stage for the first time in nearly twenty years, Oscar-nominated actor Woody Harrelson is set to appear in David Ireland's award-winning satirical play, Ulster American. He will be joined by Andy Serkis (who you may know by a certain cough) and Derry Girls' Louisa Harland, playing an English theatre director and a Northern Irish playwright, respectively. The play first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018 and was met with five-star reviews and riotous applause. Ulster American will be directed by the award-winning Jeremy Herrin, who recently directed Amy Adams in her West End debut. Make sure you catch this hilarious and provocative black comedy while you have the chance!
