Back by popular demand - The Weir returns

Wednesday, 15th February, 2017 1:00am

On a stormy night in Brendan’s pub, isolated above a Leitrim town, the men are gathering for their daily pint.

The arrival of a stranger in their midst – a beautiful woman – spurs them to impress her with stories. They are stories of souls past, spirits present and spectres unforeseen. One story, however, is more chilling, more sinister and more real than any of them could have foreseen.

The Weir, written by Conor McPherson, is a classic McPherson tale and a masterpiece of modern theatre. It has won an Olivier Award along with the Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play.

The show had a successful run in Galway’s Town Hall last year and is back by popular demand.

The Irish Examiner described is as “perfectly measured” while the Mail on Sunday said it is “a first rate production of a play that reaches powerfully into the understated drama of ordinary lives”.

The show runs at the Town Hall Theatre tonight, Wednesday 15 February, Thursday 16 February and Friday 17 February. The show starts at 8pm.

Tickets are €20/€18. See for tickets or call the box office on 091-569777.
