BWW Review: THE WEIR at Burning Coal Theatre Stirs Up Haunting Tale of Woe Photo BWW Review: THE WEIR at Burning Coal Theatre Stirs Up Haunting Tale of Woe
by Lauren Van Hemert - Dec 6, 2018

What makes a good play? A musical can hook you with a snappy showstopper, but a play, on the other hand, is all about the language, rhythm, and story. And some of the best contemporary plays I've seen of late are more character-driven than plot-driven and an exploration into the daily life of the everyman, muddling through just like the rest of us, trying to find himself or reconcile with his inner demons. I suppose it is the fine art of storytelling, as well as the astute observation of the ordinary while skating between the supernatural and the mundane, that makes Burning Coal's current production of Conor McPherson's THE WEIR so engrossing.
