I have just completed a play, Pawns,
on power dynamics at the Tudor court. Characters include Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and Henry VIII.
Reviews for A La Carte -
performed play (April 2018) ‘If there’s a subject that’s rich in buried emotions and subtext, it is funerals and their aftermath. In A La Carte
– which is written by Richard Woulfe and directed by Clare Langford – we meet Terry (Edwin Flay) and Eric (Chris Pybus). Eric was ‘happily’ married to Clem (Cameron Bell), but unbeknownst to Eric, Clem had been sleeping with Terry – before AND after his marriage. So who really knows Clem and what was he really like?’ BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL
‘ the humanity and subtlety of Richard Woulfe's delicately gentle piece A La Carte, a meeting between a grieving man played with an intriguing and pathos inducing angst by Chris Pybus, and the man with whom his recently deceased husband had been having a longstanding affair. The waves of grief and the chemistry between Pybus and Edwin Flay make this piece a haunting contemplation of loss, desire and the attempt to fill the emptiness of the heart.’

A stage play of mine, Homehelp, ran for three weeks at the White Bear Theatre in 2001. In 2011, His Most-Obedient Servant, was produced for radio by The Wireless Theatre Company. In 2012, RTE Radio (Ireland’s national radio station) broadcast A muse is it I am?, a play based on the relationship between James Joyce and his partner/wife. Other short pieces have been performed in London and elsewhere.
