Castlebar Musical and Dramatic Society are delighted to present Conor McPherson’s Award-Winning masterpiece The Weir. In a small bar in a rural Ireland, three local men are settling down for the night, enjoying good beer and company. Their normal routine is shaken up when Finbar enters and introduces them to Valerie from Dublin who has just moved into an old haunted house in the town. As the night (and the amount of liquor) progresses, each man starts to tell a ghostly tale. What starts as innocent braggadocio into a real fright when Valerie reveals a real, haunted tale of her own from the past. Examining chances of missed opportunity and the loneliness that results in it, The Weir is a haunting play with its roots in Irish folklore.
The play is directed by Caroline Barry.
