The Walworth Farce

National Theatre
by Enda Walsh
Genre(s): Comedy, New Writing

About: The Walworth Farce

It’s 11 o’clock in the morning in a council flat on the Walworth Road in London. In two hours time, as is normal, three Irish men will have consumed six cans of Harp, fifteen crackers with spreadable cheese, ten pink biscuit wafers and one oven cooked chicken with a strange blue sauce. In two hours time, as is normal, five people will have been killed.

Direct from a critically acclaimed run in St Ann’s Warehouse, New York and the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this remarkable play by Enda Walsh (creator of Edinburgh Fringe First winning Disco Pigs, Bedbound and Druid’s The Walworth Farce) delivers an achingly tender insight into what happens when we become stuck in the stories we tell ourselves about our lives.
