Spine-tingling tales spun in a rural Irish pub is the setting of "The Weir," opening Friday, September 20 at San Pedro's Little Fish Theatre. The play features Irish folklore of ghosts, faeries, and mysterious happenings. The play runs through Oct. 19.
Three locals meet in their neighborhood pub and after a few pints they attempt to spook a newcomer, Valerie, with chilling stories full of spirits past and present. Taking her turn, Valerie spins her own story that is more chilling than any of the men could have anticipated.
One of the wonderful things about the Little Fish theatre is its intimate setting. The audience really feels like they’re in the scene along with the actors.
“The Weir” is written by Conor McPherson. “The writing is rich and often wonderfully funny,” reviewed the London Telegraph.
Cylan Brown, David Graham, Bert Pigg, Don Schlossman, and Kristina Teves portray the pub owner and his patrons. Stephanie Coltrin directs.
The play will run Fridays and Saturdays September 20, 21, 27 and 28, plus October 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 8pm. Mid-week performances will be presented Wednesday October 2 and Thursdays October 3 and 17 at 8pm. A Sunday matinee is scheduled for 2pm on October 13, after which the creative team will be available for 10 to 15 minutes for post-show discussion with the audience. Tickets are $27 adults and $20 students. Get tickets here: http://www.littlefishtheatre.org/wp/tickets/
