Sean Walsh

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…

Rich Soil, Good Seed…

Published on Monday 21st October 2013 by Sean Walsh

Beginnings… Early plays… London sojourn…

And on pay night, a pub. Pint of bitter your only man – only man I could afford at the time (late 60’s). West Kensington, Wandsworth Common, wherever my local happened to be… The public bar. A cheaper pint. A dart board. Maybe dominos. And Irish, dozens of Irish. Paddies from the west and south of Ireland. Speaking Hiberno English – quite unaware of the music in their voices, their accents. Workers with strong, calloused hands… I mixed with them, listened to them – but was not one of them… Though I did not realise it at the time I was netting a rich harvest… words, sentences, turns of phrase that would surface again in the months and years to come… result in Drama that would strike a chord in the heart of Everyman:
GLUEPOT.
THE DREAMERS.
CENTRE CIRCLE.
