Veterans of Stage and Screen, Maire Hastings (Glenroe) and Áine Ní Mhuirí (Ballykissangel) who together with Emmet Kirwan (Fair City, Veronica Guerin) feature in ‘Oscar Night’ written by Alan McMonagle.
It’s Oscar Night in the off-the-beaten-track home of aging sisters Annabelle and Miranda. The two ladies have been living together for years. A love of movies and a mutual dependency sustain them. The Oscar Ceremony has become an annual ritual and the two sisters make themselves comfortable in front of the TV with bowls of snacks and red wine. The banter becomes a little edgier as they turn it upon themselves. At some point there is a knock on the door. An escaped felon is in need of some shelter and some quick cash!
