A Chilling Tale From a Stranger

Brian Cox in 'The Weir'

The Weir premiered in 1997, but since then had seemingly fallen into the abyss of forgotten works. Just recently, however, it looks like someone went fishing in that precipice, and Conor McPherson's play took a bite.

The story has a Canterbury Tales-esque beginning, with a group down at the pub recounting stories to one another. The prize here, however, is not to win a free meal, but to win the affections of a lady. They tell the tales of 'sous past and spirits very much present', but it is the chilling story of their new lady stranger that sets teeth on edge.

Directed by Josie Rourke, the show is being played at the Donmar Warehouse until the 8th June, with tickets ranging from 7.50 - 35. There are evening performances on Mondays-Saturdays at 7.30pm, and 2.30pm matinees on Thursdays and Saturdays.
