In High Germany

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Dermot Bolger 

  • Setting

    The action takes place on Platform 4 of Altona railway station, Hamburg just after midnight on 19 June, 1988.

  • Synopsis

    Set during the 1988 European Football Championships, In High Germany explores the dilemma facing Irish international soccer fans who live outside Ireland and for whom following Ireland on their European excursions has become a matter of personal as well as national identity. The play looks past the olé mania to explore the lonely, surreal and increasingly sad dilemma of the best pals who now see each other only at internationals and part company at railway stations, pensiones or cafes to return to their new lives and new homes abroad.
