Enda Walsh: Episode 141


Have you ever wanted something but had no idea how to get it? Today’s guest knows a thing or two about it too. Enda Walsh is the multi award-winning playwright behind Disco Pigs, The Walworth Farce, Ballyturk, Misterman, The New Electric Ballroom and Once: The Musical. This week he joined Jarlath to discuss living on crisps, finding his path, leaving Cork in search of anonymity, spotting raw talent in Cillian Murphy before he had ever acted and having Roddy Doyle as his early mentor.

Having overcome severe anxiety, OCD and the pressure to repeat his success, Enda has truly experienced both the highs and lows of critical acclaim. He explains how his collaboration with David Bowie came about, how they worked together and the awful moment he revealed to him his illness.
