The Weir by Conor McPherson
The Weir By Conor McPherson
“A spellbinder that transfixes you … No praise is too high” The Guardian
**GALA NIGHT – Saturday 21 September 6.30pm with canapés & wine – £5 supplement.**
In Brendan’s pub, isolated above the town, in the rural west of Ireland, the men are gathering for their daily drink and banter. The arrival of a stranger among them – a woman – spurs them to impress her with stories.
They are stories of spirits past and of spirits present. But one story is more devastating than anyone could have foreseen, and has a surprising impact on this group of colourful characters.
On its première in 1997, The Weir won the Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle and Olivier award for Best New Play, and established Conor McPherson as one of our finest playwrights. Full of humour and wonderful language,The Weir is A. Come and immerse yourself in the wonderful atmosphere of the pub and the live Irish music set that precedes the play!
