Chrissie and Jade spend their days in pyjama’s; waiting. Waiting for the kettle to boil, waiting for Coronation Street, waiting for the next bit of juicy gossip. They barely leave the doorstep because they’re Waiting For IKEA. Nothing much changes in the Pimlico flats, each day begins and ends the same; it’s what happens in between that keeps the neighbours interested.
‘Recession? Is that a new fragrance by Calvin Klein?’
The Celtic Tiger has been and gone and they never even stroked it.
Set in the heart of inner city Dublin, where night wear is day wear and bitching is everywhere. Waiting for IKEA is a heart-warming story of friendship, family, community and sun-bed obsessives.
Waiting for IKEA was the first show in the history of Dublin Fringe Festival, to sell out in advance of opening.
