THE WALWORTH FARCE
Dinny and his two sons have left Ireland. What will they make of London? What will London make of them? Trapped in a tiny flat, endlessly rehearsing their past, they embark on a chaotic, roller-coaster ride through hilarity and terror.
The Walworth Farce – which also features Leona Allen in her first major professional role – will play for a strictly limited four-week run, from 10 January – 8 February 2015.
This major new production from Landmark Productions is directed by multiple Olivier Award winner, Sean Foley, with set and costumes designed by Alice Power and lighting designed by Paul Keogan.
