OUR NEW PRODUCTION FOR SEPTEMBER 2021

TOUCH theatre and Gweek Players are joining forces this September to stage a production of The Welkin by Lucy Kirkwood.

Print allFunny, bawdy and at times bleak, the play, set in the 18th Century but with a very modern tone, tells the story of Sally Poppy, who has been convicted of murder but who seeks to avoid hanging by declaring that she is pregnant. To assess her claim, the judge calls a jury of twelve women, and their deliberations are at the core of the drama. It is a serious play about women’s rights and roles, but there is a bawdy, raunchy humour (usually directed at men!) which punctuates the more serious themes.

Watch this space over the coming months for more details.
