Delighted to post this review from Waterford Today Newspaper for my radio play ‘The Daffodil’ which broadcast on KCLR 96fm at the end of February.

“A very funny play, ‘The Daffodil’ nonetheless dealt with a number of serious global themes which impact contemporary Ireland: alcoholism, closeted homosexuality, the dangers of celebrity culture, loneliness, misplaced nostalgia and denial. However, the work is essentially entertaining and its sparky dialogue combined with a significant musical aspect to lend it a broad appeal.”

Please note: I don’t know when/if there will be a podcast – but I’ll keep you posted. Please see the side bar for a link to listen to my previous radio play ‘Cow’.

And if any of you are in Cork, Ireland, please see if you can catch ‘Dreamland’ playing at the Everyman until March Sat. 15th. ‘Dreamland’ was written by one of Ireland’s leading playwrights and directors, Jim Nolan, who directed both my plays. Michael Power who plays ‘Liam’ in ‘The Daffodil’ and ‘Damien’ in ‘Cow’, also stars in ‘Dreamland’. It’s a great play and causing quite a bit of controversy in Ireland – which is always a good sign.
