Back to the Office
The first thing greeting me was a pile of post in the communal hallway, and the familiar smell of the polished wood staircase leading to the top floor of number 11, where our offices are based.
The wall calendars display March, the office plants have dehydrated and withered, in stark contrast to the lush and vibrant greenery of the Merrion Square Park outside.
I replace empty air fresheners with hand sanitisers and gel and turn on the TV to keep me company.
Half empty buses zoom by but the line of tourist coaches that once graced Merrion Square North are no longer visible.
Children still play in the playground but only a few, people still relax in the park but social distanced apart and Oscar Wilde still looks on from his perch with an amused grin and no doubt, a sharp-witted comment.
Wandering around to a little coffee shop and restaurant called ‘il Caffe di Napoli’ beside the DART station on Pearse Street, and I am the only one in a shop that once bragged a regular queue out the door.
Today it’s four staff and one customer and the result is a leisurely chat, not possible in the past due to time and service demands.
The Production People and Extras Ireland are a people business, a company ‘Passionate about People’. The fact is, our people are our brand, and we genuinely look forward to a full family reunion in the not too distant future, taking tentative but reassuring steps in the meantime to make it happen. We’ll continue to work remotely for the next little while, but our office is ready to welcome us back very soon.
