The Walworth Farce

Very interesting – takes a traditional Irish family tragedy and presents in a farce form. It takes a while to figure out what is going on, but once you catch on, it is fascinating. funny and sad all at once.

This was part of the worldstage at Harbourfront, and was produced by Druid Theatre from Ireland. Good cast of very solid performers.

    Feckin' Mad Micks!The three male actors must have been the hardest working actors in Toronto this year.Irish tragedy in farce time – a weird concept, but it kinda worked. Certainly worth the time spent watching it.
