Cyprus Avenue

February 2016.  Cyprus Avenue is a stage play written by David Ireland, a book of the play is published by Bloomsbury.  The play premiered at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin and I was lucky enough to see it during the first run, with an excellent cast including Stephen Rea (lately of War and Peace on the BBC) in the lead role.

The play has been described as, “a complex study of Loyalist paranoia”,  in the form of the lead character Eric, a northern Ireland loyalist who believes his daughter’s baby is Gerry Adams780x400.fitandcrop.

The play is due to appear at the Royal Court Theatre in London in April 2016.

Very funny and very dark.
