The Walworth Farce received its world premiere by Druid in 2006.  It has since wowed audiences in New York - “as brilliant an original as you are likely to see in the theatre this year” (The New York Sun) - and won the prestigious Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe during its sell out run in 2007.


Interview with the playwright, Enda Walsh, on The Walworth Farce


The Walworth Farce Set - Traverse, Edinburgh


What are we if we are not our stories?’


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.


This remarkable play by Enda Walsh combines hilarious moments with shocking realism as it delivers an achingly tender insight into what happens when we become stuck in the stories we tell ourselves about our lives.
