Description

What can happen when we become stuck by the stories we tell about our lives? Following on the success of Inis Nua's production of Bedbound in 2010, visit the world of Enda Walsh again in the rundown London bedsit of a seemingly exiled father and his two sons. Twisting and turning, this farce combines uproarious comedic moments with shocking realism to portray a family absorbed by their own personal mythology.
Originally commissioned by Druid Theatre Company, The Walworth Farce was a huge success at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival (and winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award) and was later staged in London at the National Theatre. This is a Philadelphia premiere.

"An unsettling but exhilarating blend of the hilarious with the horrifying" (Irish Times)

"A theatrical experience that claws at the imagination for days afterwards" (Variety)
