Eric Miller is a Belfast Loyalist. He is exclusively and non-negotiably British. But nowadays he is worried he might be Irish. When Eric sees a likeness between his new-born granddaughter and the Irish republican politician, Gerry Adams, his sanity starts to unravel. Determined to defend his family and his heritage, Eric’s lifetime of ingrained prejudice and unsettled identity push him to the edge.

Cyprus Avenue is a co-production between the Royal Court Theatre and the Abbey Theatre. The original production at the Royal Court in 2016 was supported by Cockayne Grants for the Arts, a donor-advised fund of the London Community Foundation.

The performances of Cyprus Avenue at The Public Theater have been supported by Culture Ireland.
