The Irish Heritage Theatre presents Keith J. Conallen performing two plays by Dermot Bolger. In High Germany, Eoin, an Irishman living in Germany, recalls a story of friendship and nostalgia for a football match from Euro ’88. Twenty years later Eoin returns to Ireland in The Parting Glass, where he is now part of a changing country caught up in a surging economic boom while also experiencing life altering personal events. The plays explore the complexities of leaving and returning home and the human need for belonging.
Each play will be performed on alternating days.
