The WeirReturning to the stage this year, Conor McPherson's The Weir was first premiered in 1997 and won the Evening Standard, Critics' Circle and Olivier Award for Best New Play, establishing McPherson as one of the greatest living playwrights. Opening with the gathering of three men in a rural Irish pub, a routine daily pint is soon interrupted by the arrival of a further friend and a female companion. The presence of the woman encourages the men to embark on telling stories that have a supernatural theme. Delving into tales of Irish folklore, ghosts, fairies and mysterious happenings, one story is eventually told that is so realistic and chilling that it surpasses anything the men could have envisaged. Directed by Josie Rourke, the return of this modern classic will be the first major London revival since its premiere.

About The Donmar Warehouse

Housed in an impressive red-brick industrial building - at various times a brewery, a banana warehouse and a film studio - this tiny repertory theatre is one of the great success stories of the 1990s. Created as a studio space for the RSC in 1977, it became a shabby but popular fringe theatre in the 1980s, a testing ground for producers with big ideas but little money.
