The German Irishman - Stories • CD-Audiobooks • Storytelling/reading

Ireland - A nation of poets and storytellers.

Which place, apart from the Irish capital of Dublin, could have produced three noble-prize winners in literature? In the footsteps of William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Beckett, dozens of new Irish writers have gone on to find fame and make their contribution to the legend of Ireland as a nation of poets and storytellers.

In this show Harald Juengst guides and accompanies the audience on a literary tour across the Emerald Isle: you will meet modern Irish protagonists like Roddy Doyle, Frank McCourt, Hugo Hamilton, and Brendan Behan. And Harald also presents the "Honourable Irishmen" such as Tony Hawks, Pete Mc Carthy and Heinrich Boell.

As a sensitive, literary tour guide, Harald presents the authors in thrilling, true-to-life style, gesture and voice.

Apart from the above programme, Harald also offers a wide variety of shows designed in accordance with organisers’ wishes to suit:

  • St Patrick´s Day Specials
  • Halloween Specials
  • Irish Christmas Stories and Customs
  • Political & Historical Stories
  • Lectures on Irish facts and figures
  • Lectures and visual impressions (Powerpoint Presentation)
  • German authors and Ireland (Boell, Giordano, etc)

Pressreviews & Comments

“Jüngst erzählt und rezitiert die Texte irischer Autoren. Die Übergänge sind fließend, mal mit Gefühl, mal mit viel Witz und Humor, vor allem kurzweilig.”
