In the Middle of the Fields - Film Premiere
January 12 - 31, 2022

We are delighted to share that our summer theatre production,  In the Middle of the Fields by Deirdre Kinahan, will make its on-screen debut in New York City’s 1st Irish Theatre Festival. The play was originally staged outdoors this past summer at P St Beach, receiving critical acclaim. The project is directed by Laley Lippard, who also directed the theatre production earlier this year, with Emmy Award winner Doug Wilder as director of photography. The film will be available online through the 1st Irish Theatre Festival. If you missed the show this past summer, now is your chance to catch up on this celebrated production!

Critical praise for In the Middle of the Fields

Washington City Paper
“ingenious…there is no better group to bring live theater back to the District.”

“In the Middle of the Fields is likely the best English-language oncology play since Wit, Margaret Edson’s 1999 Pulitzer Prize winner”

The Washington Post
“could hardly be more pertinent at this stage of the pandemic: Is there reason for hope? How to cope with uncertainty? How to make the most of a new beginning? “In the Middle of the Fields” fairly shivers with such timely questions as it unfurls in this U.S.-premiere production”

“Lefkow is terrific, expertly calibrating the fluctuations of Eithne’s fear, exasperation and grit.”

DC Metro Theatre Arts
"Solas Nua’s exceptional care and vision in producing this piece once more speaks to the first-rate work of this small but important company."
