Episode 43. Get Real with Patrick Wilde.


This weeks chat is with Mr Patrick Wilde. Patrick is a TV, film and theatre writer. He has also worked extensively as a theatre director.

His film ‘Get Real’ is a favourite on the LGBTQ section of Netflix.

To list all of Patrick’s achievements would take up pages of notes but just a sample include – the cult hit TV show ‘This Life’, ‘Eastenders’, ‘As If’, ‘Casualty’, ‘Monarch Of The Glen’.

He also worked with Tim Rice on a London revival of ‘Blondel’ and, amongst other plays directed my second play ‘Lightning Strikes’ at the Dublin Gay Theatre festival.

We talk about his life and work in London and how it all began. We talk about the politics that inspired his writing and how different London was pre the abolition of Clause 28.

Ladies and gentlemen – jump in and enjoy!
