2 hours 20 mins is about right and that's what's on the official ATG website.

Long time, no speak, Cat6! :)

I wondered that, Lynette. Taken from the ever-reliable Wikipedia (!):
The weir of the title is a hydroelectric dam on a nearby waterway that is mentioned only in passing as Finbar describes the local attractions to Valerie. It anticipates and symbolises the flow of the stories into and around each other.

Spoiler.
Consider if Kirwan's character's story is true....
Also, this play came at an interesting time in New Writing. In a time where there were a lot of plays with In Yer Face characteristics, McPherson's play is successful as a gentle and subtle piece.

Oh yes, I fully took from it that Kirwan's story was true, which was why that part was so compelling. I agree it's a gentle and subtle piece. I think the fact that it's advertised as a ghost story does it no favours. It's nothing at all like your traditional ghost story. It's more a gentle piece of human drama.

Enjoy, Jean Hunt. Do let us know what you think :)

Very catchy. If they'd had that, the show would have run for years ;)
