The Weir

by Connor McPherson
£7.99   paperback  Nick Hern Books (2001)

The Weir by Connor McPherson 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.

Olivier Award for Best New Play
Evening Standard Award for Best New Playwright
Critic's Circle Award for Most Promising New Playwright

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, itís clear that Valerie has something on her mind. She has a tale to tell thatíll stop them all dead in their tracks...

"'A beautifully crafted and compassionate piece, dealing with love, loss and loneliness. It works because one believes so intensely in the characters that one shares the experiences they talk of, because it contains at its heart a shattering event and because it demonstrates the healing potential of storytelling... a fine piece of writing' "
