I thoroughly enjoyed this play, although I feel it would be more appreciated by those who know Ireland and the Irish. There were moments of real drama and some great acting, so the one hour 50 minutes (with no interval) flew by. I had a cheap seat (late booking) but the view of the stage was fine, and there was no problem with the acoustics. A lovely theatre, and a very enjoyable evening.

I came with high expectations of this production and left well satisfied that they had indeed been met . A rivetting evening with a wonderful cast (especialy Brian Cox ) with all showng complete mastery of timing , and command of both spoken and body language .I like the rest of the audience was immersed into the pub's environment and "the plot " for ninety minutes and when time was called and the pub's ligths went out reluctantly had to leave after a stellar production .Encore

Weir? Schmeir. The Emperor's new suit was on view tonight. For the price of a ticket, you could get yourself a Ryanair flight to Dublin and within an hour or so be more entertained than you will be by this tedious evening of cliche. Brian Cox's accent wandered all over like a drunk in Temple Bar at 3am, and the most riveting thing for me was to find out that the clock behind the bar was actually working and I could watch precious moments of my life ebb away until I could leap from my seat and go home. Two lukewarm curtain calls would seem to indicate that I was not alone in my indifference to this bit of malarky that was so boring that malarky is probably a bit flattering.
