15 April-7 May. David Ireland’s hard-hitting play about a deranged Belfast loyalist is set within the sectarian hatred of Northern Ireland. The story is centred around Eric Miller, a loyalist who believes his baby granddaughter is the Sinn Féin leader and republican arch foe Gerry Adams.
Both subversive and darkly comic, the play follows an ageing man who struggles with the past amid a terror that his cultural heritage will diminish in the future. Cyprus Avenue, widely acclaimed, was commissioned by the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, where it was staged before coming to London. The production is not suitable for children under 14.
