Gerry Adams has disguised himself as a new-born baby and successfully infiltrated my family home.

Eric Miller is a Belfast Loyalist. He believes his five-week old granddaughter is Gerry Adams.

His 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.

Without prejudice we’re nothing! If we don’t discriminate, we don’t survive!

The story of one man struggling with the past and terrified of the future.

An Abbey Theatre commission, it will open at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin prior to its run in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Combines horror and humour and thought in bone-shaking proportions... forcefully propelled by a comic idea....Rea: Tremendous. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“A complex, unsettling and provocative play about nationhood and identity... Rea handles the play’s shifts... superbly. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“A frazzled lunacy... toying with taboos and a violent absurdity... Featherstone's production plays up the tangy comedy. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“A great play... with a stonkingly good performance by Stephen Rea. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Rea holds it all together phenomenally... a tremendous gravitas... absolutely sensational deadpan comic timing. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Miller played with unsettling calmness by Rea... Raises its black laughter by highly questionable means. ”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)
