The Walworth Farce

written and directed by Enda WalshLandmark Productions in association with MCD

Enda Walsh’s furiously funny play, The Walworth Farce starring Brendan Gleeson, Brian Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson and Leona Allen, played a sold-out run at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin from 10 January – 8 February 2015. 

‘What are we, if we’re not our stories?’

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 production was directed by multiple Olivier Award-winner Sean Foley, with set and costumes designed by Alice Power and lighting designed by Paul Keogan.
