Lucy Kirkwood's The Welkin

One life in the hands of 12 women.

The Welkin is an unpredictable, gritty, thriller. A bold story packed with tension and dark humour, told in a striking, contemporary way.

Rural Suffolk in England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, a young woman 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.

James Macdonald (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) directs Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Funny Cow) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls, Mr. Selfridge) in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony Award-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Skins).

Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors


All RSC productions have been cancelled till 2021

A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else.

“So I to find a mother and a brother

In quest of them, unhappy, lose myself”

How do any of us really know who we are? A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. A woman wonders why her husband is not the man he was, but starts to rather like it. Confusion mounts as everyone uncouples from themselves. Will they ever find themselves again? And do they really want to?

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019, The Hypocrite 2017, The Merry Wives of Windsor 2012).

Miles Jupp will make his RSC debut as Antipholus of Syracuse in The Comedy of Errors
