What's On

The Walworth Farce
 

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, Enda Walsh’s 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 we’re not our stories?

Workhorse Theatre Company has assembled a wonderfully talented cast and creative team for their production of The Walworth Farce, which plays at Kings Cross Theatre from 17 May. Producers Zoe Trilsbach and Troy Harrison are thrilled to present this deceptively old-fashioned high farce.
