Archives - The Weir

by Conor McPherson

Directed by Laura Powell Eddy

Friday 17th – Saturday 25th June 2005 in the Auditorium

A bar in a remote part of Ireland: the local lads are swapping ghost stories to impress a young woman from Dublin recently moved to the area.

But she turns the tables on them…

Connor McPherson won the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award and London’s prestigious Olivier Award in 1999 for The Weir.

What is impressive is how much McPherson packs into a series of tall tales told on a wintry night. At moments the characters simple stare into the future; at others the sighing wind underscores the preoccupation with death. This is pure theatrical poetry.
