Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo and Andrea Irvine complete the cast of the American premiere of David Ireland’s Cyprus Avenue, directed by Vicky Featherstone, at The Public Theater.
The acclaimed Abbey Theatre and Royal Court production of Cyprus Avenue is set to begin its limited Off-Broadway engagement June 2 ahead of a June 25 opening night.
Adékoluẹjo and Irvine join previously announced star Stephen Rea, who led the cast of the runs in London and Ireland, along with original cast members Chris Corrigan and Amy Molloy.
Cyprus Avenue tells the story of a British man in Ireland trying to make sense of a radically changed world. A Belfast Unionist and “non-negotiably British,” his sanity begins to unravel when he discovers a likeness between his newborn granddaughter and the Irish republican leader, Gerry Adams.
The new play received acclaimed engagements at London's Royal Court, Dublin’s Peacock Stage at the Abbey Theatre, and the MAC in Belfast.
The American premiere at The Public will feature scenic and costume design by Lizzie Clachan, lighting design by Paul Keogan, sound design by David McSeveny, and fight direction by Bret Yount.
