About The Welkin

Get The Welkin tickets and see TV and film icon Sandra Oh back on stage in New York. A new play from Lucy Kirkwood, author of the Tony-nominated drama The Children, this US premiere is a mischievous and darkly funny look at rural community and the seemingly ordinary lives within it. Set an alert for when The Welkin tickets go on sale to book on TodayTix.

Experience The Welkin in New York and travel back to the 1700s. Set in the English countryside, The Welkin follows a town as it awaits the return of Halley’s comet. However, bigger news may eclipse the event: a woman is sentenced to death but tries to evade her penalty by claiming she is pregnant. Twelve women come together to determine her truth, and fate. Sarah Benson directs this new production fresh off her acclaimed run of Teeth, and previously she took home an Obie Award for directing Fairview, which won a Pulitzer Prize.

More information about The Welkin

One of TV and film’s most beloved actresses, Sandra Oh starred on Grey’s Anatomy (earning multiple Emmy Awards) and Killing Eve (for which she won a Golden Globe Award). For that latter show, in 2018, Oh became the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. She has also been seen in The Princess Diaries, The Chair, Rabbit Hole, and more.

However, while highly regarded in Hollywood, Oh is no stranger to the stage: she has appeared off Broadway before, performing at The Public Theater, and has also acted at La Jolla Playhouse in California. Oh is known for her depictions of strong, singular women, and this play will be no different: The Welkin features a larger cast, just one man and over a dozen women contending with collective morality in 1759 but in surprisingly contemporary ways.

What to watch for

  • In addition to being a Tony nominee, playwright Lucy Kirkwood is a winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, one of the world’s top playwriting prizes given to women. With The Welkin, she makes her highly-anticipated off-Broadway debut.
  • Sandra Oh is the starriest name in the cast, but it is also an ensemble of theatre mainstays, including Ann Harada (Avenue Q), Nadine Malouf (Grief Hotel), and Emily Cass McDonnell (The Thin Place).
  • The design team is equally accomplished: the scenic team dots is a first-time Tony Award nominee this year, and costume designer Kaye Voyce is an Obie winner with dozens of off-Broadway credits.
  • Atlantic Theater Company is known for its groundbreaking work that often transfers to Broadway or tours the country. Some memorable hits include Spring Awakening, Kimberly Akimbo, and, most recently, Days of Wine and Roses.
