The Weir

Performance times: 
Tuesday 27 March - Saturday 31 March 2012, 19:45
Written by Irish playwright Conor McPherson, The Weir won the Laurence Olivier Best New Play Award in 1998 and gained much critical acclaim. The play is typically Irish - one moment funny and the next poignant, one moment whimsical, the next tragic.

Set in a one-room pub, attached to a farm in a backwater area near Sligo, Brendan, the publican, and his two regulars, Jack and Jim, are challenged by the arrival of Finbar, local boy-made-good, bringing with him an attractive young woman, Valerie, who has come to live locally. The four customers are provoked into relating personal experiences that are inexplicable. The story-telling with its idiomatic Irish weaves a magical spell that will hold audiences in thrall as it moves from whimsy to tragedy.
