Step into a windswept County Leitrim pub in rural Ireland where the chill in the air isn’t just from the storm outside. Tony Award-nominated playwright Conor McPherson’s celebrated play The Weir unfolds as a captivating and evocative evening set in a small, remote pub, drawing audiences into a world where tales of folklore and the supernatural weave an enchanting, yet eerie, atmosphere.

As the night unfolds amidst the howling wind and crackling fire, Brendan, Jack and Jim captivate the newcomer, Valerie, with their ghostly anecdotes. The atmosphere thickens with suspense and hints of the supernatural, each story woven intricately into the rich fabric of Ireland’s haunting traditions. Yet, when Valerie, a recent arrival from Dublin, unveils her own poignant tale, the mood shifts dramatically, leaving the men spellbound by her revelation.

The play unfolds as a tapestry of supernatural narratives interwoven with personal tragedies, showcasing the haunting power of storytelling that binds individuals together in unexpected ways. McPherson’s deft touch and the raw emotions brought forth by the characters create an unforgettable theatrical experience that lingers long after the curtain falls.

The Weir promises an unforgettable exploration of human connection, the echoes of personal haunting, and the mystical allure of Ireland’s folklore, captivating audiences with its hauntingly evocative storytelling.

Recommended for ages 14 and up.
