The Walworth Farce | Workhorse Theatre Co
by enda walsh
May 18 - June 9
Dinny has kept his two boys Sean and Blake locked away from the dangers of the world in a tiny flat on Walworth Road South London ever since bringing them from Ireland as young Boys.
He endlessly forces them to perform a farce at 11am every morning which is the story of their final day in their homeland. But as the outside world begins to infiltrate their seclusion and cracks begin to appear in Dinny’s version of events the blurry line between truth and lies threatens to tear the family apart.
Equal parts hilarious, menacing, absurd, terrifying, tender, violent, and deeply moving The Walworth Farce is a wild exploration into what can happen when we get stuck inside the stories we tell. Because in the end…
"what are we, if not our stories?"
Writer Enda Walsh | Director: Kim Hardwick
With: Rachel Alexander, Laurence Coy, Robin Goldsworthy, Troy Harrison
Assistant Director Sarah Hadley; Set/Costume Design Isabel Hudson; Lighting Design Martin Kinanne; Sound Design Benjamin Freeman; Stage Manager Stephanie Kelly
