Current Show


The Weir

by  Conor McPherson 

The Bay Players are pleased to announce our upcoming production of THE WEIR, by Conor McPherson. Grab a pint of stout, fill your glass with vino, and join us for an evening of warm company and chilling tales (beer & wine will be served at all performances)!

In a small bar in a rural Ireland, four local men are settling down for the night, enjoying good beer and company. Their normal routine is shaken up when they are introduced to Valerie, a woman from Dublin who has just moved into an old ‘haunted house’ in the town. As the night progresses, each local from the bar starts to tell a tale of ghostly happenings; what starts as innocent braggadocio between the men turns to fright and dread 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.
