Ensemble Theatre presents ULSTER AMERICAN

Ensemble Theatre is thrilled to present acclaimed Northern Irish playwright David Ireland’s Ulster American, a savage satire exposing the fragile egos and abuses of power that run rampant in Hollywood, from Monday 13th May to Saturday 8th June.

Jay is the Oscar-winning actor. Leigh is the ambitious director. Ruth is the young playwright with a gritty historical drama that is destined to make them the talk of Tinsel Town.

With the shiny accolades of Hollywood within their clutches, the three rendezvous to secure the play and discuss the nitty gritty – but when boundaries are broken, the night collapses into full-blown chaos. The show must go on!

Jeremy Waters:

Ulster American does what so much good satire does – it exposes hypocrisy, sends it up, and skewers that hypocrisy in a really fun way. (The Big Time), who plays Jay Conway.

Starring alongside Jeremy is Harriet Gordon-Anderson (Boxing Day BBQ) as young, Northern Irish playwright Ruth Davenport and Brian Meegan (Boxing Day BBQ) as Leigh Carver. The trio reunite to reprise their roles from Outhouse Theatre’s 2018 season at the Seymour Centre and return season in 2022.


It’s very provocative, it’s quite savage. The subject matter covers a lot of things that are very current, but at the same time there’s this sense of fun and incredible honesty.

Don’t miss this acerbic and brutally hilarious exposé of the darker parts of ourselves and what we do for power.
