We’re excited to embark on a new co-producing partnership with the Sherman Theatre and present our new in-house production of The Weir, a fascinating and unsettling play from Conor McPherson.
There’s no dark like a winter night in the country.
In remote rural Ireland, Brendan’s bar is a shelter and solace for lonely souls. Drinks flow to a backdrop of howling winds and the whistling of the sea; four friends with disquieting stories to tell and a stranger to impress.
A play brimming with heartfelt humour and confessions of our deepest fears in the dead of night. There’s no truth in the shadows they say. It’s only old cod, like.
The Weir received the Olivier Award for Best New Play (1997) and Conor McPherson received the Evening Standard Award and the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright (1997).
Tobacco Factory Theatres and the Sherman Theatre present this chilling contemporary classic, directed by Rachel O’Riordan.
