'A beautifully crafted and compassionate piece, dealing with love, loss and loneliness. It works because one believes so intensely in the characters that one shares the experiences they talk of, because it contains at its heart a shattering event and because it demonstrates the healing potential of storytelling... a fine piece of writing.'  Financial Times
Winner of the Olivier, Evening Standard and Critic's Circle Awards.
The Weir is also published in McPherson Collected Plays Volume II.
