The Weir

The WeirT01565010671
Set in a bar in a remote part of Ireland, the local lads are swapping spooky stories to impress an attractive young woman, Valerie, recently arrived from Dublin. What begins as a simple visit to the local pub soon turns out to be an evening of both funny and spellbinding stories, until the final tale takes a strange and unexpected twist...Hailed as the best new play of the nineties, when The Weir premiered at the Ambassadors Theatre, London in 1997, it won McPherson the Evening Standard 'Most Promising Playwright Award, and in 1999 it won the prestigious Olivier Award for 'Best New Play .
