Finally, three years later launching my debut stage-play 'Waiting For The Offo'
You’re invited to the upcoming production of my debut stage play, ‘Waiting For The Offo’!!!
This play should have been performed in 2020… (the journey to this production is probably a story worthy of its own show), but finally, the play will be on in Dublin this year!
You can see the play from the 4th-8th of July 2023 for five evening shows and one Saturday matinee in The New Theatre Temple Bar Dublin.
As this is quite a small theatre, ticket numbers are very limited and will sell out, so we recommend getting yours ASAP to avoid missing out on the craic.
“Do ever wonder why we do this to ourselves?”
It’s 7 am Sunday morning, the party was two nights ago but Terry and Niall are still awake and trying to keep the sesh alive…
In this coming-of-age-late comedy-drama, Terry Joyce and Niall Freeman are two loveable Millennials who can’t grow up. After a year abroad, Terry has returned home from exile on the continent to the familiar dull round of Irish parties and living in his mother’s spare bedroom. A self-proclaimed session master, his best friend, Niall, never left and supplements his Monday-Friday insurance sales job with an alter-ego as a weekend warrior.
Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s seminal piece Waiting For Godot (but set in Dublin), Waiting For The Offo follows these two estranged best friends as they face off against having no drink, old love interests, the local nut-case drug dealer, purposelessness, nihilism, psycedelics, and finally, each other.
This play deals with the perennial themes of hopelessness, friendship, mental health and coming of age in the confusion of the modern world. Awarded the Dublin Fringe Festival Fringe Lab Fifty in 2020, Written by Mahon McCann and Directed by Conan McIvor, this dynamic new production will take you on a euphoric free-fall into the dionysian world of the Dublin session scene; the good times we love, and the bad habits we don’t.
If you have any questions about the performance or things you wanna know, feel free to email me back!
PS won’t have a podcast this week, as busy with the launch, but we will be back next week with the clinical psychologist, and professor of psychology, Greg Henriques on the ‘problem of psychology’.
