Winkie

by Nigel Ensor
Opening Night 12 July 2012
Director: Nigel Ensor

Winkie is a man-child, a forty-year old man with serious learning difficulties who thinks and behaves like a four-year old child. His only carer is his mother, his only environment his small, safe home. Then his mother dies and Winkie’s care becomes the responsibility of his sister and her less than sympathetic fiancé. Winkie’s story is one of love and neglect, of sacrifices made - and of cynical self-interest. A sad and illuminating, all too relevant tale for our time.
