The Weir

The Weir

In a small Irish town, the locals exchange stories round the crackling fire of Brendan’s pub to while away the hours one stormy night.

As the beer and whisky flows, the arrival of a young stranger, haunted by a secret from her past, turns the tales of folklore into something more unsettling. Her story is more chilling and more real than any of them could have ever imagined.

Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, THE WEIR is a shadowy tale delving into the dark corners of human lives. English Touring Theatre (French Without Tears) and Mercury Theatre Colchester mark the 20th anniversary year of Conor McPherson’s chilling modern classic with this atmospheric new production.
