Geraldine Plunkett (The Clinic, Fair City etc.) plays Eithne in Jennifer Johnston’s short play ‘Waiting’. Eithne’s story takes us through her marriage, her life in London and her longing to return to Glasthule. Beautifully played by Geraldine Plunkett, the show is directed, with her usual consummate skill, by Caroline Fitzgerald.

They still remain close, however, until Jerry is court-martialled for desertion, and Alex is put in charge of the firing squad.

Afterwards Jennifer Johnston will read from her new work ‘Naming the Stars’
