Saturday Night Radio Drama - John Boorman - 2020


Brendan Gleeson, Stephen Rea and Angeline Ball star in ‘2020’, written and directed by John Boorman – a satirical journey into the Irish future - post-Tiger, post-Euro and post-X-Factor.‘2020’ is the sequel to last year’s skit on the Celtic Tiger meltdown, ‘The Hit List’. 

It’s 2020 and Ireland is out of the Euro, out of fuel and electricity too. From his wind-powered radio station, Jo Devlin (Brendan Gleeson) broadcasts a message of hope, inviting listeners to his barter exchange where you can “give what you can and take what you need”. But a rival faction urgently seeks a return to rampant consumerism. 

Starring Brendan Gleeson, Stephen Rea, Niall Tóibín, Emmet Bergin, Angeline Ball, Susan Fitzgerald, Kate Minogue, Oliver Callan, Paul Ronan, Joe Taylor, Mark Fitzgerald, Charlotte and JJ McNamara. With original music by Colm Mac Ioniomaire and Kevin Brew. Musicians: Frank McNamara, Charlotte McNamara, Colm Mac Ioniomaire, Mark McGrath and Kevin Brew.

Who knows, if Marine the fascist wins in France.....

As usual with Irish national radio, you have to download it to listen to it.
