Rural Ireland has its share of ghosts, and a few of the better ones are rumored to be making an appearance in "The Weir," the eerie play by Conor McPherson opening Wednesday at the Irish Classical Theatre Company. A hit on Broadway, the haunting "The Weir" zeroes in on a small village in the Auld Sod, where a group of men begin telling supernatural tales to impress a woman new in town.

What does the woman do to turn the tables on the guys? That remains to be seen. It isn't saying too much, though, to point out that the cast includes Saul Elkin, Vincent O'Neil, Dylan Ezra (above), Gerry Maher and Margaret Massman (above). Directing "The Weir" is Derek Campbell, who played Friar Laurence in Shakespeare in Delaware Park's recent "Romeo and Juliet."

"The Weir" opens at 7:30 on Halloween night, and continues Thursdays through Sundays through Dec. 2. For more information, call 853-ICTC.
