CAN'T COPE WON'T COPE

A coming-of-age millennial comedy drama following two girls, Aisling and Danielle, as they navigate Dublin and the perilous waters of adulthood.

SEASON 1

Aisling O’Dowd (Seána Kerslake, A Date For Mad Mary) would rather be shot from an actual cannon than change her routine. She’s lived with best friend Danielle (Nika McGuigan, Philomena, Traders) all through college and ever since. They fit together like a perfectly constructed knife in its holster, protecting each other from the sharp edges of the world. But something is stirring. Danielle would never admit it but she is becoming less and less enamoured with the life they have created…

The two girls have one thing in common – a fear of reality. They don’t know it yet. But reality has them firmly on its radar.

SEASON 2

Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope Season 2 sees Aisling and Danielle struggling with the new normality of being apart.

We meet Aisling after she’s had her soul sucked out of her by small town Mallow for an entire summer. She has a job in a local financial establishment, but in typical Aisling style she throws in the towel at the first signs of trouble.

Meanwhile in Vancouver, Danielle is struggling despite having her wish of a life in Canada with more art and less Aisling come true. There is no-one at her side to roll her eyes at when the super politically correct art school culture in Vancouver starts grating on her.

Season 2 gives Aisling and Danielle the chance to make all the right choice… but where's the fun in that?
