Marie Cooper in The Welkin by Lucy Kirkwood

The Welkin play script cover

I am super excited to announce that I will be performing in the stage playThe Welkin’ directed by Jez Pike at Sewell Barn Theatre in Norwich and rehearsals are underway.

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.

When is The Welkin?

Dates for the show run from Thursday 13th October 2022 to Saturday 22nd October 2022
