Conor McPherson’s The Weir opens UK tour at Colchester’s Mercury Theatre

In a small Irish town, the locals exchange stories round the crackling fire of Brendan’s pub to while away the hours one stormy night.

As the beer and whisky flows, the arrival of a young stranger, haunted by a secret from her past, turns the tales of folklore into something more unsettling.

One story, however, is more chilling and more real than any of them could have ever imagined.

A shadowy tale delving into the dark corners of human lives, English Touring Theatre and Mercury Theatre Colchester are taking Conor McPherson’s The Weir on tour, opening in Colchester on September 14.

Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Conor McPherson’s chilling, modern classic, The Weir, was written 20 years ago. This revival is to be directed by Adele Thomas.

The production stars Natalie Radmall-Quirke, Louis Dempsey, Sean Murray, John O’Dowd and Sam O’Mahony.
