Waiting for Ikea

If you fancy a spot of theatuh this month, I highly recommend Waiting for Ikea, a spiky new comedy written by and starring Jacinta Sheerin and Georgina McKevitt (nominated for Best Actress during the 2006 Fringe Festival for her role in thisispopbaby's Danny and Chantelle: Still Here).

The plot is as follows: "Waiting for Ikea is the story of Chrissie and Jade, two best friends in north inner city Dublin, who spend their days waiting; waiting for the postman, waiting for the kettle to boil and waiting for Coronation Street. They won't shop in Argos 'cos we're waiting for IKEA'.

"Pimlico flats is akin to Cheers: everybody knows your name, your business, your record and what you are having for dinner. Nothing much changes in Pimlico, each day begins and ends the same; it's what happens in between that keeps the neighbours interested. The only current affairs these girls are concerned with is whether Mrs Dignam is having it off with Gunner Eye Gilby. The Celtic tiger has been and gone and they never even stroked it. 'Recession? Is that a new fragrance by Calvin Klein?'."
