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

‘The craziest thing about Enda Walsh’s Walworth Farce is how quickly it starts making sense.’
