As you've discovered, it's near impossible to shoot a scene like this with your only source of light being on camera flash. Do you have a speedlite you can use off camera?

If Tony has the light, I was simply going to send him to the local drug store to pick up some foam core.

Here is a one light setup with three pieces of foam core (one back, one right facing left, and one front left facing down back right). Strobe was fired into the latter.
