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 – Mark 2.

Published on Sunday 19th November 2017 by Sean Walsh

CONCLAVE, the new, shorter, tighter, faster-moving version is now available on etc. And all the better for my editing during the past several weeks – even if I say so myself!

Set against the backdrop of the first Good Friday, the storyline is uncannily familiar – and relevant: the High Priest, Caiaphas, and his Inner Circle meet behind closed doors to plot and plan their defence of the status quo against the threat from Galilee posed by the Nazarene – even if that means resorting to bribery, putting a certain spin on given facts/events…

As such, it transcends a particular time and place, could be set just about anywhere in the world – wherever politicians, power-brokers, meet in cabinet, conclave… (I have intentionally maintained “neutral speech patterns” throughout…)

And though it is based on the gospels – with particular emphasis on the Passion narrative of Matthew – it can be seen as a drama about men anywhere, at any time, willing to go to any lengths to protect their status quo. Taste and see!

First Review.
