The Welkin by Lucy Kirkwood: 3 – 8 July 2023

The Welkin at Sewell Barn Theatre July 2023

I am super excited to perform in the stage play ‘The Welkin’ by Lucy Kirkwood, directed by John Holden and Sabrina Poole at Sewell Barn Theatre in Norwich from the 3rd to the 8th of July 2023. The play was originally directed by Jez Pike and performed on a couple of dates in October 2022. Unfortunately due to a few members of the cast falling ill with Covid, the show had to be postponed to 2023.

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 Monday 3rd July to Saturday 8th of July 2023.

Ticket Prices

Full: £12.00
Concessions: £11.00

Where can I buy Tickets for The Welkin?

You can book in advance by ordering tickets from the Ticketsource website or you can buy tickets on the door at Sewell Barn Theatre. It is advisable to book in advance.

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.
