The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room

Devised and Scripted  by Will Irvine, Mary Jordan, Sonya Kelly, Antoinette Morelli, Olivia Pouyanne and Karl Wallace. Performed in March 2006 at Portview Trade Centre, Newtownards Road, Belfast (Installation Performance)

“one of the most charming adventures in trust that you’ll perhaps ever undertake … a flight of fancy that is truly of the moment …. A little stairway to an hour and a half of heaven …. A strong ensemble of actors who transform the everyday into the alluring”


Balloonist Albert crash-lands into a village full of women who have been waiting for 21 years for their men to return from war.

A Magical Mystery Tour in a bus to a beautiful place beside a red post-box in the middle of a weird hamlet.  Storytelling which whisks us away to a land that time forgot.

“an opportunity to forget the pressure of the adult world and immerse yourself in a beautiful, gentle story that will make you laugh, cry and understand the human condition a little better”


“charming, funny and poignant …… a little bit of magic … a delight”
