-Details on four dramas in Storyland-
A lethal virus has wiped out millions of people worldwide. Pregnant women are the carriers. With no known cure, containment is the only option. Pregnancy is now outlawed. Starring Grace Kelley as Alison and Jenny Ni Chleirigh as Kate.
Conor Shaw didn’t have a great time in school. A chronic overachiever, Conor decided to take his Leaving Cert when he was 15 and went straight to college. Now that he’s finished his teaching degree the only place that will take someone so young and weird is his old school where he has to teach his old class who still hate him. Starring Conor O’Toole, Carol Tobin (The Savage Eye) Neil Molloy (Republic of Telly) and Kevin McGahern (Hardy Bucks).
Trouble Times Three
Scott (Declan Reynolds) is getting out of Dodge. But he won’t tell his best friend and room-mate Emmalina (Gemma Leah Devereux) why. It’s probably because he has within the last 24 hours found out that he has impregnated both American student, Katie (Audrey Hamilton) and his dole officer, Olivia (Michelle Beamish)! Before he goes though, there might be one more bundle of news to be delivered.
Nobby (Shane Carroll) and Snout (Ray Fitzsimons) spend their days perched on the bar-stool resenting, berating and, well, begrudging without any reason nor rhyme. But when Gemma (Brianne Fitzpatrick), an American and George (Will Govan), an Englishman, come into their lives overflowing with enthusiasm and excitement, the Begrudgers might finally get that reason and rhyme after all.
