Eric Miller is a Belfast Loyalist. He believes his five-week old granddaughter is Gerry Adams, the noted Irish Republican politician who is the president of Sinn Féin.

Eric’s 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 Loyalism.

Cyprus Avenue was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, on 11 February 2016, before transferring to the Royal Court Theatre, London, in April 2016.
