Later this year, we will be collaborating with English Touring Theatre to present Conor McPherson’s The Weir.

Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Conor McPherson’s chilling, modern classic The Weir embarks on its first ever UK tour in Autumn 2017, in its 20th anniversary year.

In Brendan’s remote bar in Northern Ireland, the locals nurse their pints while telling tales of local folklore – old and new. The desire to impress a stranger takes these tales of confessions to a new level, but none of them could be prepared for the one they are about to hear.

Tickets will go on sale with the launch of our Summer brochure in March 2017. Sign up to our mailing list below to be the first to receive updates.
