The West Coast Premiere of The Walworth Farce Continues This Weekend @ UCLA LIVE
The Walworth Farce
At 11 a.m. in a grotty London flat, Dinny and his two adult sons begin their daily routine. Iron the dress. Get the roast chicken. Brush the wigs. Start the show. Then, over the course of two hours, kill off five people, as usual. This tragedy wrapped in farce upends all cozy, homespun Irish-immigrant tales of the old country. Playwright Enda Walsh delves unsparingly into why Dinny left Ireland, why his sons don’t leave him, and the story that has entrapped them all.
