The Weir
The Weir

by Conor McPherson
Directed by Julia Kemp

8th to 15th December 2018

In a remote bar in rural Ireland, an unexpected visit from a young woman who has recently moved to the area prompts talk of fairies, folklore and unquiet spirits. As the drink flows and the local lads’ stories become increasingly frightening, it’s clear their visitor has something on her mind; and a tale to tell that’ll stop them in their tracks.

Voted one of the most significant plays of the 20th century in a National Theatre poll, this spellbinding play is by turns hilarious, moving, and deeply chilling. Be warned. It may haunt you long after the curtain has fallen.

'The play of the decade... a modern masterpiece'


This play includes some strong language and some smoking.

There will be no interval.
