David Ireland’s black comedy takes one man’s identity crisis to the limits as he uncovers the complexity of Ulster Loyalism.

Tugann dráma dúghrinn David Ireland géarchéim céannachta fear amháin thar fóir agus é ag iniúchadh gnéithe casta de chúrsaí Dílseachta i gCúige Uladh.

‘Gerry Adams has disguised himself as a newborn 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.

‘Tá Gerry Adams faoi cheilt mar naíonán nuabheirthe agus é istigh i mo theach in éineacht le mo chlann.’

Is Dílseoir as Béal Feirste é Eric Miller. Creideann sé gurb é Gerry Adams a ghariníon nach bhfuil ach cúig seachtaine d’aois. Tá a chlann ag impí air dearmad a dhéanamh ar an saol atá caite agus ar achrann a tharla fadó ar cuma le daoine fúthu níos mó, ach tá a oidhreacht chultúrtha faoi ionsaí. Caithfidh sé gníomh a ghlacadh.
