Folk

Date: 27 Mar 2019

Sister Winnie’s no ordinary nun. She’s feisty, irreverent and has a soft spot for a pint of Guinness.

Her front room is a haven for socially awkward Stephen, who shares her passion for folk music. Their world is suddenly shattered – literally – when wayward and rebellious Kayleigh throws a brick through the window, bringing chaos into their lives. Each of them is keeping a secret and as confidences are shared, ever-optimistic Winnie concocts a harebrained scheme to help her friends unleash their creative talent on the world.

From Tom Wells, writer of The Kitchen Sink, Folk brings together a classic trio of misfits with heart, humour and song. Libby Asciak, Gerard Carroll and Genevieve Lemon feature. Terence O’Connell directs.
