Ulster American has opened at Riverside Studios London with fight direction from Renny Krupinski.
Running until January 27th.
Renny choreographed the climatic fight sequence at the end of Ulster American. It required believability, wit, an awareness of pace and rhythm, comedy, horror and repeatability. He nailed it. He was sensitive to the actors’ comfort and safety, and my desires as a director. The standing ovations every night were testament in no small part to his skill and professionalism – Jeremy Herrin
98% of the time stage fights are terrible – they take you right out of the play. Renny’s work on Ulster American really lifts the whole play up and makes for a perfect climactic finale. Seeing how Renny would make use of ordinary objects and his facility to create exciting drama out of the seemingly mundane made this a really special experience – Woody Harrelson
Renny is an artist. Not just an incredible fight director but an incredible story teller. I hope to work with him on many productions in the future – Louisa Harland
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.
Power dynamics, cultural identity and the perils of being a woman in the entertainment industry; nothing is off limits in this pitch-black comedy from the award-winning playwright David Ireland (Cyprus Avenue, The Lovers).
