Almost two decades have passed since this play premiered in London, picking up a slew of awards and projecting the Dublin playwright into the international limelight. The Weir was voted one of the 100 most significant plays of the 20th Century in a poll conducted by the Royal National Theatre, London.
Set in a small Leitrim pub in which the five people gathered within recount a range of ghost stories, it is a tidy little masterpiece that perfectly distills the writer’s obsession both with the supernatural and with the spiritual elements of our daily existence while showcasing, too, his gift for creating characters drenched in a complex humanity.
Join us for a staged reading on March 17 and 18, 2017.
