Overview

The spellbinding, beautifully observed hit from the master of suspenseful realism; combining superbly chilling tales of the supernatural with the hilarious banter of a small community in the heart of rural Ireland.

A bar in a remote part of Ireland. The local lads are swapping spooky stories to impress a young woman recently moved to the area from Dublin. As the drink flows and the stories become increasingly frightening, it’s clear that Valerie has something on her mind. She has a tale to tell that’ll stop them all dead in their tracks.

Winner of: Olivier Award for Best New Play, Evening Standard Award for Best New Playwright, Critic's Circle Award for Most Promising New Playwright.

A spellbinder that transfixes you...No praise in fact is too high...THE WEIR offers the most exciting evening in theatrical London.

Sheer theatrical magic. I have rarely been so convinced that I have just seen a modern classic. Tremendous.

With bewitching fluency allied with a gift for locating the greatest emotions in the smallest details, and a faultless ear for idiom, McPherson achieves something remarkable.
London Telegraph
The writing is rich, vivid and often wonderfully funny...A distinctive talent to cherish.
