It's almost Halloween! If you're in the NYC area, I'd like to invite you to "The Weir," a play of spooky tales from Ireland. Just $15 fro MeFite's (see "more inside" for details). "Conor McPherson's The Weir is easily one of the most celebrated new plays of the past 20 years ... Folding Chair Classical Theatre's remounting of this lovely and elegiac play is an excellent opportunity to catch a faithful rendition of this sometimes chilling, sometimes sentimental piece that appears to be entrenching itself into the modern Western Canon ... I was glad to see the script as well served as it was." -- nytheatre.com [more inside]
"a wonderful night of theater....find your way there. A solid cast, and excellent chemistry ..." -- audience-member comment on TheatreMania.com. "The Weir" is directed by grumblebee and features Evangeline in its cast. Tickets are normally $18, but we're making them available to MeFites for $15.

Hi. I'd like to invite all New-york-based Mefites to see my play, "The Weir," by Conor McPherson. Oct 14th through Nov 6th. I directed it and Mefite Evangeline is acting in it. It's a great Halloween play, full of spooky stories. And it won the Olivier Award in 1999. Tickets are usually $18, but a lot of you helped me on AskMetafilter, so I'm making tickets available to Metafilter members for $15. [more inside]
