Winnie's no ordinary nun. She swears, she smokes, she drinks Guinness, and she loves a sing-song with Stephen. But soon everything's going to change.

Stephen's lost his way. Finding solace in music, he knows he must start again… if only he knew how.

Kayleigh is a teenager, unsure of herself. But when unexpected circumstances lead her to Winnie and Stephen, she starts to find her voice.

Surprising and poignant, Folk is a hilarious and not-so-holy story of hope, coming together and finding your feet when your world is turned upside down. It was co-produced in 2016 by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Hull Truck Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre.

Press Quotes

'A gem... sparkles throughout with warm humour and sharp wit yet under that shiny surface lie some deeper questions about loyalty, trust and generosity'

WhatsOnStage

'As warm as an electric blanket on a nippy night… a play of empathy, generosity and hope. Poignant but not sentimental, in its own delicate, minor key way, it's a celebration of the different forms that love can take'
