“Horror and humour in bone shaking proportions.” ★★★★★ - The Observer

Empress Theatre presents the Australian Premiere of

CYPRUS AVENUE

MAY 15 - JUNE 8

Written by David Ireland
Directed by Anna Houston

“Life is precious. But not so precious that we can’t destroy it.”

Belfast loyalist Eric Miller is under attack. Convinced that Irish republican Gerry Adams has disguised himself as a new-born baby and successfully infiltrated his family home, Eric must act swiftly to stake his territory. The battles of the past reignite as Eric’s attempts to preserve his heritage and safeguard his future lead him to an act of unthinkable terror.

Shockingly brutal and uproariously funny, Cyprus Avenue throws a grenade at the politics of identity and the madness of bigotry.

“Compulsive viewing ... unmissable.” ★★★★ - The Telegraph

“The most shocking play on the London stage ... a subversive drama that has never been more relevant.” ★★★★ - The Guardian
