David Ireland’s award winning new play returns before transferring to Belfast and New York for an extended summer run.
Eric Miller is a Belfast Unionist. He believes his five-week-old granddaughter is Gerry Adams.
His family keep telling him to stop living in the past and fighting old battles that nobody cares about anymore but his cultural heritage is under siege. He must act.
David Ireland’s black comedy takes one man’s identity crisis to the limits as he uncovers the modern day complexity of Ulster Unionism.
