The Welkin

Presented by Nashville Story Garden at Riverside Revival , Nashville TN

Sep 20 - 30 2022
The Welkin

US premiere in Nashville – the thrilling, ambitious, female-driven play by Lucy Kirkwood and directed by Halena Kays.

One life in the hands of 12 women. As the country waits for Halley’s Comet, Sally Poppy is sentenced to hang for a gruesome 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 just trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke defending the girl, and an angry mob baying for blood outside, the women wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst. A darkly funny new play that feels like the feminist classic you’ve been waiting for.

Featuring Rachel Agee, Jessica Anderson, Lauren Berst*, Rona Carter*, Diego Gomez, Destinee Monét Johnson, Candace-Omnira LaFayette, Melodie Madden Adams*, Megan Murphy Chambers, Matthew Rose, Melinda Sewak, Tamara Todres, Inez Vega-Romero, Jennifer Whitcomb-Oliva, and Ayla Williams.
