Richmond Shakespeare Society
-The Weir - OLD EVENT

by Conor McPherson, directed by Harry Medawar

An isolated rural bar in a farmhouse in the West of Ireland. The regulars drift in from the cold and the wind outside for the company and an evening drink or two. Each has his own reason to be there. They discuss the weather and what they did during the day, and they tell stories of the ghosts and fairies and angels that abound in the Irish countryside.

However, this night will be different because among them is a stranger, who also has a story to tell...

Richly atmospheric and wonderfully funny, Conor McPherson's unforgettable play is a modern classic and has won multiple awards in Britain, Ireland and the United States.
