6

Take Graham, the mousy Anna’s overbearing husband, who has asked his sports-mad employee, Peter, with Joan, his attractive fiancée, to a postfuneral tea, hoping furtively for a dalliance with Joan. Add Leonard, his divorced brother-in-law, an ex-teacher, who is inclined to flights of poetic fancy and discussions on life with Bernard, the garden gnome. Place them in a neglected, suburban garden with a lethally-jammed lawnmower and a murky pond, over which presides Bernard and you have the setting for this comedy with wry, social observations on instantly recognisable characters from ordinary life.

A rural part of Ireland: 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 première in 1997, The Weir won the Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle and Olivier awards for Best New Play, and established McPherson’s place as one of our greatest living playwrights.  THE WEIR by Conor McPherson is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

Will the peasants be freed from tyranny? Will Baron Bolligrew be taught a lesson? Will Blackheart - the bully - be defeated by Sir Oblong? Will the dragon win?
