OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Conor McPherson 

  • Synopsis

    Through the night, Joe Walshe presents 'the John & Jane Doe show' on DBR 107.1FM where he tries very hard to highlight the richness and glamour of the lives of ordinary folk: housewife Anne, superintendent Brian, poet Kevin, theology guru Eddie, and recently-freed pal Bob. Meanwhile, the rest of the world — pubescent boys, call girls, technicians, bar-stool intellectuals, nurses, and louts — carries on undeterred.
