The Weir

In playwright Conor McPherson’s award-winning drama, a group of hard-drinking Irishmen gather together at a pub one dark, stormy night. As the liquor flows, the men share stories of ghosts and supernatural happenings—but are these tales true or spun from the imaginations of drunkards? That’s up to the audience to decide. Enter a pretty young Dublin woman, and things really start to get interesting. Voted one of the 100 most significant plays of the 20th century, The Weir is as hauntingly spellbinding as it is sad and sweet.

Note: South Coast Repertory warns theatergoers that this play is filled with profanity and contains “herbal cigarette smoking”—but if you found those things offensive, you probably wouldn’t be reading this publication.
Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m.; Tuesdays-Sundays, 7:45 p.m. Starts: March 13. Continues through April 3, 2011
