The Irish Heritage Theater will present the streaming production of IN HIGH GERMANY next month


Irish Heritage Theater has announced its streaming production, In High Germany, directed by Peggy Mecham and featuring local favorite and Barrymore Award winner Keith Conallen. The show will run from 1/11 to 15/11. Tickets are $15. For more information on the production and to purchase tickets, go to: www.irishheritagetheatre.org.

Last season, IHT aired a production of Bolger’s The Holy Ground, which was a smash hit, garnering wonderful reviews from critics and audiences alike. They re-edited the production for anyone who missed it on the sidelines, employing professional filmmakers to create a polished, beautifully shot version of the play.

In High Germany is the story of an Irish emigrant in Germany who tells his son about football, and his home country, through the nostalgia of a match played many years ago. It’s the story of Euro 88, the continent’s biggest footballing event, and the Irish team are front and center. The excitement is high for football fanatics like Eoin, Shane and Mick, who all work overseas. Supporting the Irish team in Germany, they witness the ups and downs and the cultural divides that separate the fans. For these emigrant friends, home is no longer a place of birth. Home is where their team plays, and there will be plenty of adventures on and off the pitch before the final whistle blows.

Joining Keith and Peggy as part of the production team are: Christian Jessop, independent filmmaker from Angel Peak Studios, Megan Coyle, stage manager and Jack Zaferes, sound designer and composer of the original score.

IHT has been called a “daring little theater company” that takes risks and has put on “dazzling performances”. Given its size, the company always challenges itself to produce the best possible theater on a small budget. IHT’s mission is to provide a window into the works of Irish and Irish American playwrights, celebrating the rich history of Irish theatre.
