Loyalty Day

Chairman-- er, President Trump has declared May 1st to be "Loyalty Day." At moments like this I wish he'd go back to just trying to legislate. He's terrible at it, and most of his worst ideas get swatted down one way or another. But whenever he wants to get his mojo...

Reboot

Adversity causes my creativity to clam up. The words have not flowed. I blame the President. There are probably other factors, but the existential horror show that has been the last five months in America has made me want to curl into a ball on my couch and hide my...

Thanksgiving 2016

Like most of my friends I'm ready for this year to be over. But it's probably good to take a minute and remind myself that there are still things for which I am truly thankful. I am thankful for my wife, Mandy. I am thankful for parents and siblings. I am thankful for...

Checking In

So much stuff has happened since my last post that I don't know where to begin. I don't know about you guys, but I'm friggin' exhausted. The big news, of course, is the election. It's been two weeks and I still don't know what to say about it. I am enraged. I am...

Press for MISS HOLMES

My new play Miss Holmes opened on Monday, and I am proud to say that the response so far has been enthusiastically positive. I've taken the liberty of rounding up some of my favorite pull-quotes: "Christopher M. Walsh's 'Miss Holmes' offers a cunning and highly...

What I Meant to Say

On Sunday, August 14th, Lifeline Theatre hosted a "Sneak Peak" event for my upcoming play, Miss Holmes. We do one of these for each mainstage show. Early in the rehearsal process we invite our subscribers and donors to come and watch a couple of scenes and hear about...

Hammer Trinity Vice

If there's anybody left who reads this, you might be wondering where I've been. The answer is Miami. I was there for seven weeks this spring, with the House Theatre of Chicago's production of The Hammer Trinity. It's the longest I've been away from Chicago since I...

Facelift!

The ol' website's gone and got herself a little work done. A little nipping and tucking, a little streamlining, a little smoothing out. I think it looks rather fancy, if I do say so myself. I hope you guys will give it a spin and let me know what you think. I'm deep...

Why I Should Be In the Marvel Movies

Dear Kevin Feige, I am an actor-- WAIT! DON'T STOP READING YET!!! Let me try this again. There is a character in the Marvel universe named after me, and I think you should cast me to play him... me... him. Please let me explain. Christopher M. Walsh first appears in...

Deathscribe 2015

On Monday my other company, WildClaw Theatre, capped off months of hard work with Deathscribe 2015. This year's edition of the annual horror radio play festival was special as it was the first big event for what we're dubbing WildClaw 3.0 - the company that assembled...
