About This Show

Hurricane is a solo performance that tells the life story of one of Britain’s most charismatic sporting heroes, Alex “Hurricane” Higgins, from the glory of his 1982 World Championship win to his descent into drunken self-destruction. Hurricane, presented by Ransom Productions, Belfast Ireland’s newest theater company, stars the author, Richard Dormer and is directed by Rachel O’Riordan.

After playing two sold-out runs in Belfast, touring Ireland extensively, and earning Richard the BBC Stewart Parker Award and The Stage Edinburgh Fringe Best Actor Award, Hurricane comes to New York as part of the Brits Off Broadway Theater Festival.
