I am super excited to be performing in the stage playThe Welkin’ directed by Jez Pike at Sewell Barn Theatre in Norwich this October.

What is The Welkin about?

“Rural Suffolk, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s Comet, Sally Poppy is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder. When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of twelve matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose.

With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst.”

The show contains strong language and adult themes.

Parking at Sewell Barn Theatre

The theatre shares its car park with a sports centre and on Thursday evenings the running club takes up many of the parking spaces. So, if you visit the theatre on a Thursday evening, it might be worth leaving a little earlier to ensure that you get a parking space.
