Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Conor McPherson’s chilling, modern classic The Weir comes to Cambridge as part of a UK tour to mark the play’s twentieth anniversary.
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. One story, however, is more chilling and more real than any of them could have ever imagined.
A shadowy tale delving into the dark corners of human lives, The Weir is a co-production between English Touring Theatre (French Without Tears, The Herbal Bed) and Mercury Theatre Colchester.
