Mull Theatre present: The Weir

30 09 2010

From the company that bought you sell-out show Laurel and Hardy

Three men and one woman, Valerie, in a pub in IrelandIn a small bar in rural Ireland, four men vie for the attention of Valerie, a pretty young woman from Dublin who has just rented an old house in the area. After a few drinks, they tell stories of spooky local folklore. But Valerie’s tale, of why she left Dublin, is melancholy and true – and far more shocking than anything made up…

One of the most praised and successful plays of the last 15 years, The Weir uncovers moving themes of loss, abandonment, loneliness and regret for the road not taken.

(Suitable for age 14+)

Winner of the 1999 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play
