The 2018 winner of the Best of Edinburgh Award is
“Ulster American” by David Ireland
Directed by Gareth Nicholls
Starring Robert Jack, Lucianne McEvoy and Darrell D’Silva
Produced by Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh
Gareth Nicholls’ production was a huge, sold out hit of this year’s Festival. It is equally violent and funny, and has provoked audiences to gasps as well as tears of laughter.
It will return to Traverse in February 2019— the New York run has not yet been finalized.
