A night of telling stories

21:45, May 07 2012

The New Plymouth Little Theatre's July production The Weir, by Conor McPherson, is now in rehearsal.

Gillian Somers, Morris West, Travis Graham, Chris Watson and Adam Sedgwick make up the cast.

Set in a small bar in a remote part of Ireland on a wet and windy night, three middle-aged locals, along with the landlord, drink and swap stories - as only the Irish can - to impress a young woman who has recently arrived from Dublin. It turns out to be an evening of storytelling, and the mood created as the night draws in marks each one of the group.

The Weir won the 1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play and will run from July 11 to July 21. It is directed by Heather Harrison.
