About The Weir
A stellar cast has been assembled for The Weir at the Gaiety Theatre from 20th February until 4 March and will star Gary Lydon (Brooklyn, Borstal Boy, The Pillowman), Janet Moran (Plough and the Stars, LOVE/HATE), Patrick Ryan (Red Rock) Garrett Keogh (A Skull in Connemara, The Clinic, Veronica Guerin) and Frankie McCafferty (Vikings, Trial of the Century, In the Name of the Father).
On a stormy night in Brendan’s pub, isolated above a Leitrim town, the men are gathering for their daily pint. The arrival of a stranger in their midst – a beautiful woman – spurs them to impress her with stories. They are stories of souls past, spirits present and spectres unforeseen. One story, however, is more chilling, more sinister and more real than any of them could have foreseen.
On its premiere in 1997, The Weir won the Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle, George Devine and Olivier award for Best New Play. Quietly compelling and strangely chilling,The Weir is the perfect story for a summer’s night.
The production will be brought to the stage by the critically acclaimed, and award winning, creative team, with director Andrew Flynn (The Pllowman), Owen MacCarthaigh (set design), Carl Kennedy (sound design) and Petra Breathnach (costume design).
