The Weir

The WeirT1329810663
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

USER (18Jan03): This is the best play I have ever experienced! It had it all. I think Conor McPherson has extreme talent in bringing human emotion to the stage. I saw this play at the Royal Court Theatre in 1999 and I still think about it today. It was awesome!
