‘The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley’ in Canada

My three-act comedy ‘The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley’ began a six-night run in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island last night, staged by the Benevolent Irish Society.
Written in 2010, the play tells the story of a bachelor farmer, Gabriel Foley, who lives with his elderly mother and finds himself caught between the romantic desires of two women.
I wish the group every success with the production.

New Play: Finders Keepers

I started work on a new three-act comedy late last year. It is titled ‘Finders Keepers’ and will be my 23rd three-act comedy.
I have reached Act 3: Scene 1 of the first draft and am very happy with what I’ve written so far. The characters have really come to life and I am comfortable writing for all of them.
The story is a love triangle set in rural Ireland.

New Play Finished

I have recently completed my new play ‘For Love And Money’. It is my 22nd three-act comedy.
One drama group was kind enough to have had a read-through for me so that I could what it sounded like aloud and the reaction was positive.
Plot:
Recently-married David Egan believes that his aunt Julia is travelling from England to give him a large cash sum as a wedding present. But David’s wife Barbara has already taken time-out from their marriage and David has to get her back before Julia arrives without telling her about the money.
Cast: 3M 6F

New Play

I began writing a new play ‘For Love And Money’ at Christmas. This is my 22nd three-act comedy and am glad to say that I have almost completed the first draft.
Plot:
David and Barbara Egan have only been married less than a year, but are already living apart as Barbara needed ‘some space’. Then David discovers that his Aunt Julia is coming home from England to see the newlyweds and that she is planning to give them a large sum of money as a wedding gift. David realizes that he has to get Barbara to return home before Aunt Julia arrives without telling her about the money.
