Women on the Verge

Series 1 - Episode 2

Wed 12 Feb 10:40pm - 11:20pm W


Journalist Laura, furious when the column she craved was taken from her by her married boyfriend/boss and given to an “influencer”, is becoming a little bit wearing. Certainly, therapist Dr Fitzgerald (Sharon Horgan, co-creator of this brittle sitcom) can barely keep her head out of her hands as self-absorbed Laura (Kerry Condon) rambles on and on about her problems after last week’s disappointment, when her brother refused to let her be godmother to her new nephew.

But as Laura becomes more whiny and annoying, her friends Alison and Katie (Eileen Walsh and Nina Sosanya) hit their stride and step out of her shadow. So all is not lost, not yet.


Katie tries to win her daughter's love by buying a puppy, Laura has an emotional encounter with a homeless man, and Alison makes a big decision about her relationship with Martin.
