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…
At the Praetorium by Sean Walsh
Amazon: paperback and Kindle.
We know the Good Friday story all too well – or do we?
In “At the Praetorium” Walsh views the trial and crucifixion of Christ
through another prism – the eyes and feelings of the “minor” characters
in the story, thieves, servants, soldiers, Pilate’s wife. In doing so,
he moves US, the audience, centre-stage and challenges our
It would take a highly-talented playwright to construct new drama
from the most dramatic day in world history. Such is Walsh’s talent
that he has managed to chisel out in a simple but stark fashion a
whole new perspective on the Crucifixion story. Indeed, he is genuinely
asking, “Were you there when they crucified my Lord?”
Three fast-moving and sparely-written one-act plays [the third one a
fusion of the first two] capture the mood, tension and the challenge
of Good Friday in a wholly new and convincing fashion.
