Decadent Theatre Company presents
Thu 16th & Fri 17th June | 8pm
On a stormy night in Brendan’s pub, isolated above a Leitrim town, the men are gathering for their daily pint. The arrival of a stranger in their midst – a beautiful woman – spurs them to impress her with stories. They are stories of souls past, spirits present and spectres unforeseen. One story, however, is more chilling, more sinister and more real than any of them could have foreseen.
On its première in 1997, The Weir won the Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle and Olivier award for Best
New Play, and established McPherson’s eerie tale as a masterpiece of modern theatre.
Quietly compelling and strangely chilling, The Weir is the perfect story for a summer’s night. Decadent’s production marks a major Irish revival and national tour of this undoubted modern classic.
In association with Town Hall Theatre Galway, the Everyman Cork and the Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire
Winner of the Olivier, Evening Standard & Critics’ Circle Awards for Best New Play.
