Ulster American

Second Half Productions – 2023

An Oscar-winning American actor, an English director and a Northern Irish playwright are about to begin rehearsals for a new play — one that could transform each of their careers. But when it turns out that they’re not on the same page, the night threatens to spiral out of control. Nothing is off limits in this pitch-black comedy from David Ireland. The play is like a pressure cooker, where the director’s living-room become like a boxing ring, where the escalating arguments *spoiler* end in violence.

The concept was to shoot individual portraits of the actors giving us attitude, flexing their muscles, or playing with the camera, like boxers peacocking before a big fight.
