Award winning play comes to Tobacco Factory

Tobacco Factory Theatres and the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff are embarking on a brand new co-producing partnership.  Their production, The Weir comes to the Tobacco Factory on 25 October – 5 November.

Directed by Rachel O’Riordan, the cast of The Weir includes Steven Elliott, Richard Clements, Orla Fitzgerald, Simon Wolfe and Patrick Moy.

Set in a remote bar in rural Ireland, four friends and one stranger find solace in sharing stories ranging from the heart-warmingly humorous to the darkly confessional. A renowned contemporary classic, The Weir is a multi-award winning play, including the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play of 1997-98 as well as McPherson’s Critics’ Circle Award and Evening Standard Award for most promising playwright in 1998.
