Absolutely Productions has attracted a stellar cast to record a 90min Radio Play about cult Irish author and journalist Flann O’Brien which will be broadcast August 31st at 9.45pm on BBC Radio 3.
Dara O’Briain, Ardal O’Hanlon and Dermot Crowley all play different facets of the Irish cult hero and Pauline Mclynn plays his wife Evelyn.
Writer Annie Caulfield has set the play on the day that Brian O’Nolan, (Flann O’Brien’s real name) is sacked from his job at Dublin City Council. O’Nolan (Ardal O’Hanlon) spends the rest of the day remonstrating with his alter egos- Flann O’Brien (Dermot Crowley) and his satirical, firey journalist nom de plume Miles na Gopaleen (Dara O’Briain)- as to the cause of his loss of employment, whilst delaying the inevitable and unenviable task of informing his wife Evelyn (Pauline Mclynn).
