The Walworth Farce

Date: 23 Apr 2018

In a decrepit London council flat, three men are performing a play, a twisted farce involving a dead horse, a brain surgeon, two empty coffins, a roast chicken, Monopoly money, lots of very bad wigs and cross-dressing, and a bright yellow tin of poison.

The three men are bad daddy Dinny and his socially retarded sons Blake and Sean. They perform this sinister story of how they came to be on the run from their native Ireland – Dinny’s version of the story, mind you, which is a very unreliable version of the truth – every morning at 11am, just for each other.

Then one day, supermarket checkout girl Hayley drops around with a mislaid bag of groceries, interrupting their daily ritual with devastating consequences.

Robin Goldsworthy, Troy Harrison, Laurence Coy and Rachel Alexander feature in an intimate production of this fiendish Enda Walsh farce, directed by Kim Hardwick.
