As South Florida’s only non-profit Irish community theatre group, the Irish Theatre of Florida has been a vital part of traditions rich in Irish culture for the past 18 years. Their mission is to promote Irish heritage through the arts, to produce Irish drama in South Florida and provide a forum for the Irish Diaspora, Irish American artists and educators by connecting people of Irish heritage to the theatre. Their upcoming play, “The Country Boy,” at the Crest Theatre (see www.itofl.com) is an intimate portrait of the cost of country life versus city living and examines the whole problem of emigration to America. Full of comedy and humorous genius, beneath the laughs lies the harsh and sad reality of the bitterness, and regrets that emigration has inflicted upon Irish society over the years.
