Photo Flash: First Look at Irish Rep's THE WEIR

Irish Repertory Theatre continues its award-winning 25th Anniversary Season with THE WEIR by Conor McPherson, author of SHINING CITY and THE SEAFARER - with an official Off-Broadway opening May 23 on the Irish Repertory's Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage (132 West 22nd Street). Performances are set to run through July 7. Ciarán O'Reilly (THE EMPEROR JONES) directs. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

In a remote country pub in Ireland, newcomer Valerie arrives and becomes spellbound by an evening of ghostly stories told by the local bachelors who drink there. With a whiff of sexual tension in the air and the wind whistling outside, what starts out as blarney soon turns dark as the tales drift into the realm of the supernatural. Then, Valerie reveals a startling story of her own....Conor McPherson's THE WEIR is a haunting, evocative evening in the theatre you will never forget.

The cast of THE WEIR includes Dan Butler, Billy Carter, John Keating, Sean Gormley and Tessa Klein.
