Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Conor McPherson’s chilling, modern classic The Weir embarks on a UK tour this autumn to mark its 20th Anniversary year.

In a small Irish town, the locals exchange stories round the crackling fire of Brendan’s pub to while away the hours one stormy night. As the beer and whisky flows, the arrival of a young stranger, haunted by a secret from her past, turns the tales of folklore into something more unsettling. One story, however, is more chilling and more real than any of them could have ever imagined.

Conor McPherson's multi award-winning play has been voted one of the 100 most significant plays of the 20th Century and has enjoyed rave reviews in the West End and Broadway.  The Weir is a co-production between English Touring Theatre (French Without Tears / winners of 2016 UK Theatre Awards’ Best Touring Production for The Herbal Bed), and Mercury Theatre Colchester.

"It has at its heart the beautiful mystery we all long to embrace: that of time and timelessness, of a little lost holy family yearning for home..." - Billy Roche

"One of the best plays of the past century." - The Telegraph
