Shifting: Kissing (Kilkenny Slang)

Eamon (Adrian Kavanagh), Laura (Aoibhin Murphy), David (Geoff Warner-Clayton)

The third and final installment of our Shifting Audio Shorts aired on KCLR 96FM’s Edwina Grace show on Friday evening, preceded by cast members John ‘Shaggy’ Kennedy, Adrian ‘Razor’ Kavanagh and Alan ‘Rabbit’ Doyle. Yes, those are their real names.

Shifting: Kissing (Kilkenny slang)

The Kissing installment was written be Eleanor Walsh (no nickname yet) who is working with us on Shifting as assistant director. The voice of the girl is played by Sorcha O’Boyle, who previously worked with us on Scratcher creating the mighty props used in the show. This third installment recalls memories of a young girl’s first kiss in Kilkenny, and everything that went along with it. Sometimes, those fairytale moments do happen in life.

We’ll bring you the interview from KCLR in the next day or so, but we would like to thank the station for facilitating our few days of audio shorts and Edwina for hosting them and the cast on her afternoon show.
