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 20th November 2016 by Sean Walsh

CONCLAVE, my new, shorter, tighter, faster-moving version is now available: 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 strategy in the face of the real threat 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…
Hence modern dress, business suits… whereas Judas is a tramp, traveller, medicant…
And I have intentionally maintained “neutral speech patterns” throughout…
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.
