We are Georgina McKevitt and Jacinta Sheerin, also known as Wicked Angels, we wrote and performed the sell out comedy hit 'Waiting for IKEA' in 2007, and are back with a new darkly comic play 'I'm not ADHD, I'm BOLD'.
'Take your finger out of your nose and introduce it to the gear stick. The lights are green. Green means go… Arghhhhh. Red. Red again and you haven’t even moved one inch. People like you should be named and shamed. Well I shall take it upon myself to inform the world about the class A - A for arsehole, dickhead driver in front of me. I am updating my status, I am typing in your reg plate. I am taking control of this situation. I have the power now. HA HA, HA. You knob jockey. Let’s see how you like that’.
'I’m not ADHD, I’m BOLD' is a look at the lives of two women who are brought together by circumstance:
Dana, a primary school teacher with ADD is forced to attend therapy following a string of events, one involving an ADHD boy, a milk carton and some very strong language.
Ingrid, a dramatherapist, is newly single and detached in every way. She requires TLC, unfortunately she is about to get a smack of OCD and PMT.
One day, one therapy room, one distressed puppet.
Jacinta will be back onstage and we are thrilled that the award winning Clare Barrett (I ♥ Alice ♥ I) will be joining her. The play will be directed by Veronica Coburn (founding member of Barabbas, and director of the 2012 Irish Times Theatre Award winning 'Eternal Rising of the Sun').
We were overcome by the positive response to ‘Waiting for IKEA’, which was the first show to sell out before opening in Fringe history. We really want to bring this new work to audiences this autumn. Can you please help us in making it possible to be performed in September as part of the ABSOLUT Fringe 2012? All support will be gratefully accepted and you will have our eternal thanks!
Here are some of the lovely things people have said about us:
"Sheerin and Mc Kevitt inhabit their roles with credibility. Everyone likes to laugh and the duo are bang on the funny bone." The Irish Times
"I loved it... If you want to escape from the doom and gloom then this is the show for you." - The View
“The script is sharp and laugh out loud funny” – Irish Theatre Magazine
All the money you donate will go directly towards the costs of actually putting the play on the stage including insurance, rent, lights, costumes, design and printing.
Everything you give is a step closer to us achieving our goal and we would be so happy to have you on board as one of our Wicked Angel supporters. In return we want to make you laugh, and think, and laugh again!
Eternal thanks, gratitude and Wicked Angel love,
Georgina and Jacinta.
