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…

Conclave by Sean Walsh.

Published on Sunday 16th April 2017 by Sean Walsh


Here is a play that while set in the context of the passion of Jesus belongs to any and every age.

A group of men used to power work to ensure that they remain in power

and that an individual

who threatens their power is eliminated.

They are so committed to their own version of the truth

that they will stop at nothing

to suppress any challenge to their truth.

The one member of their group who raises the possibility

that this Jesus of Nazareth may be revealing

a more disturbing version of truth is dismissed out of hand.

Yet in spite of all the clever maneuverings

the play suggests that, in the end, God’s truth will out.

The death of Jesus is not the end of the matter after all.

Sean Walsh’s writing is pruned back to the essentials

which heightens the sense of drama

and ensures that the reader is carried along

by the flow of the marvelous dialogue.

A wonderful addition to this playwright’s portfolio.
