About the Show/Event

The Welkin
Information for The Welkin at Lyttelton (National Theatre), West End (Play). One life in the hands of 12 women. 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 12 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.
Performers Maxine Peake (Lizzy Luke), Ria Zmitrowicz (Sally Poppy), Nadia Albina, Natasha Cottriall, Aysha Kala, Wendy Kweh, Philip McGinley, Cecilia Noble, Dawn Sievewright, Brigid Zengeni, Daneka Etchells, Jenny Galloway, Haydn Gwynne, Zainab Hasan, June Watson, Laurence Ubong Williams, Shaofan Wilson, Hara Yannas.
