The Weir @ None Too Fragile

Through April 2, 2022


Kerry Clawson

Irish playwright Conor McPherson's "The Weir" at None Too Fragile Theatre is a haunting drama, not primarily for its ghost stories but more for its characters' anecdotes of loss and regret.

Director Sean Derry has put together a winning cast of fine actors to play the four Irish men and one woman who pass time in a small, rural Irish pub. As the beer and whiskey flow, we're privy to their banter, peevishness, one-upmanship, antics and underlying sense of loneliness as the five gather for one evening for some warmth, companionship and comfort.

If your looking for a delightful “slice of Irish life” play in order to escape the troubles of the world you can do no better than this currently staged production. There is humor, sadness, melancholy, fiestyness, friendship, love and caring much like you would find on the Emerald Isle. Ná tuitfidh an díon os bhur gcionn go brách 'S nach dtitfeadh na cairde atá bailithe thíos ann go brách (May the roof above you never fall in. And may the friends gathered below it never fall out).
