Podcast: Waiting S2 Ep4

From the pen of Ireland’s No.1 female comedy writer Fiona Looney WAITING is a collection of sketches, ads and mini-plays.

Some feature conversations overheard while Fiona was waiting – and some totally made-up mad stuff as well. Fiona has always been impressed by women’s ability to talk to strangers and to discuss anything but the subject at hand. It’s when they find themselves in waiting situations that their extraordinary – and occasionally bizarre – talents really come to the fore. So Sideline Productions with the support of the BAI and RTE.

Radio 1 brought together some of the finest comedy actors in Ireland to stage some of those journeys that go absolutely nowhere. And this being produced for radio they also threw in a few possibly not-quite- genuine ads in there as they well. Recorded in the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, the show was originally broadcast on RTE Radio One as part of Sideline’s COMEDY SHOWHOUSE – a new season of shows by Irish comedy writers.

The stellar cast includes –

Caitriona Ennis – ISDA Award for Best Actress (2011), nominated for Best Actress Irish Times Theatre Awards 2013 and Best Supporting Actress Irish Times Theatre Awards 2015.
Rose Henderson – credits include “Fair City” (RTE); “Raw” 3 (RTE/ITV); “Single Handed” 4 RTE/ITV) “Father Ted” (Sister Assumpta – Ch 4) & “Nighthawks” (RTE)
Deirdre O’Kane – Credits include IFTA winning lead in Noble plus TV comedies Moone Boy (SKY); Paths To Freedom (RTE) and voices Gogglebox (TV3).
