I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…
I was pressed to write a comedy so I did – albeit a black comedy!.. In two acts. Much about it in the Introduction – how it came to pass, how a four-hander morphed into a six-hander.
Not for me to say it is quite hilarious, especially in the second act! Suffice to say that when I was writing, re-writing the script – not for the first time, I should add – I was in kinks!..
Set in rural Ireland at the turn of the 60’s, it is an expose of Catholic mores as it existed at that time… In a town somewhere in the midlands. Nora and Maureen have known each other since girlhood; Dick and Cem are brothers of the Optic Measure, at weekends they “give it a lash!”
Into this comfortable, cosy set-up comes Ursula, eldest daughter of Nora and Dick, her agnostic boy friend in tow. And hey, anyone smell gun powder?!
