Second Half Productions has announced that Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee Woody Harrelson will return to the London stage for the first time in almost two decades to play Oscar-winning American actor Jay Conway in a new production of David Ireland’s acclaimed play, ULSTER AMERICAN.
The production will also star BAFTA and Emmy award-winner Andy Serkis as English director Leigh Carver and Louisa Harland as Northern Irish playwright Ruth Davenport in this brutally funny play.
An Oscar -winning American actor, an English director and a Northern Irish playwright are about to begin rehearsals for a new play — one that could transform each of their careers. But when it turns out that they’re not on the same page, the night threatens to spiral out of control.
Power dynamics, cultural identity and the perils of being a woman in the entertainment industry; nothing is off limits in this pitch-black comedy.
ULSTER AMERICAN will feature set and costume design by Max Jones, lighting design by Oliver Fenwick, sound design by Emma Laxton, casting by Jessica Ronane CDG with Nicky Allpress as Associate Director.
Tickets start at £30 with 50 available at that price for every performance. Second Half Productions will also offer 200 free tickets to West London NHS staff through their partnership with Tickets for Good. Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on 12 October with priority booking open from 10 October. For priority access please sign up at http://ulsteramericanplay.com/.
