A classic chiller by a great Irish playwright, published alongside its revival at the Donmar Warehouse. In Brendan's pub, isolated above the town, the men are gathering for their daily pint. The arrival of a stranger in their midst - a woman - spurs them to impress her with stories. They are stories of souls past and of spirits very much present. But one story is more chilling and more real than any of the men could have foreseen. On its premiere in 1997, The Weir won the Evening Standard, Critics' Circle and Olivier award for Best New Play, and established McPherson's place as one of our greatest living playwrights. Josie Rourke's production marks the first major British revival of this undoubted modern classic.

Review:

'There is a depth in the characterisation... that puts one in mind of an Irish Chekhov. I have rarely been so convinced that I have just seen a modern classic' - Telegraph
