Friday at the theatre. a Great Irish Play: The Weir

  • Mar 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

"The only theatre worth spending a night on is the kind that takes you out of yourself to somewhere else.."

Martin spends its time in a rural Irish boozer, passing banter and ghost stories with four ordinary blokes and a bird.

In this great play Conor McPherson shows the eternity drunks see in the bottom of a whisky glass: a muddled soulful place where words fade, all loves are lost and you huddle round the fire to keep out the endless night.

The cast is led by the superb Brian Cox as a compassionate old loner

The thing that binds these characters together is love. The dogged affection that this unassumingly brilliant playwright has for the people he writes

The sense of grace and even benediction that settles on the end of their evening, when everyone, no matter how drunk or gripey or tragic their stories are, look their fellow creatures in the eye and feel sorry for their loss.

Great Irish playwriting not to be missed!

Tickets through this link

Tickets cost from £14. I bought one for me and two extra ones for LEC members, as cheaper ones sell out quickly. If interested in the £14 tickets, drop me a message or post here :-)

    Once I got past the accent hurdle, I enjoyed this very much. 5 people in a pub. Such a simple setting. And yet so complex. The 5 people spoke their mind out, got angry then got compassionate, told stories, remembered common memories and opened up their hearts. This play tells how simple and complex human relationships are.

    I liked the intimacy of the play, like eardropping in an Irish pub. An interesting review here: http://www.irishpost.co.uk/entertainment/reviews/the-weir-wyndhams-theatre-london-review

    I bought one for me and two extra tickets for LEC members, as cheaper ones will sell out quickly. I'm now trying to sell them.. so before you buy a ticket, maybe you can take mine? :)

    What a brilliant way to start off St Patrick's weekend :)I've heard great things about this play! What seat numbers have people got tickets for? It would be good if we could all sit near each other.
