Riverside Theatres presents
An Outhouse Theatre Co production
ULSTER AMERICAN
By David Ireland
Director Shane Anthony

The ‘brazen, savage and brilliantly hilarious’ (Limelight) satire that wowed critics and audiences in 2021 comes to Riverside!

Gleefully skewering the powerful and privileged in post- #MeToo showbiz, this ferocious comedy will have you laughing and gasping in equal measure. A talented female playwright, an Oscar-winning actor and an ambitious theatre director meet to discuss a play that promises glory for all. But as lines are crossed and the power of Hollywood looms, the love-in descends into mayhem.

The acclaimed Outhouse Theatre Co (The Flick, The Rolling Stone, Gloria) presented the sensational Sydney Premiere at Seymour Centre in 2021 where it played to sold-out houses and five-star reviews. Now this provocative and brutally hilarious production comes crashing into Riverside.

Not for the faint of heart. Not to be missed.
