McPherson's Weir comes to Oldham

David Upton

English Touring Theatre’s production of The Weir tours to Oldham Coliseum from Tuesday October 24 to 28—just in time for Halloween.

Winner of the 1997 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Conor McPherson’s chilling, modern classic marks its 20th anniversary year.

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.
