Set in rural Ireland, John M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World follows a young man who swaggers into a small pub telling grand tales and boasting of dark deeds. Instead of condemning him, the local men and ladies admire him. Not all is as it seems, however, and when the young stranger meets his match in a feisty, beautiful barmaid, there's an unexpected twist in the tale that threatens his moment in the spotlight. This dark, comedic masterpiece still packs the same punch as when it was originally produced at Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 1907. Learn More

I went with a group of about 20 people. 19 out of those 20 people liked and would recommend this show. I am the 1 of 20 who didn't. And since this is my review, I only give it 2 out of 4 Goldstars. Why? Because, in my opinion, they "forgot the funny". It's one thing for a character to be naive (especially in a parody) but multiple characters being downright ignorant and overly stupid is not very entertaining to me.
With huge profits in mind, American businessmen venture into the Middle East to sell sandals "so comfortable you'll never want to take them off."
About the Ticket Supplier: Raven Theatre
Raven Theatre's mission is to establish itself as an important voice in regional theater, focusing on American classics, as well as new and lesser-known projects that shed light on the "American Experience." The company's mission is realized by uniting an ensemble of Chicago-based theater artists from diverse disciplines who work together with the goal of maintaining a high standard of artistic excellence with programming easily accessible to patrons of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds, and thereby enriching our community's cultural life. Vigorously fresh revivals of masterpieces by great playwrights such as Miller, Williams, Saroyan and Mamet introduce new audiences to established classics, while original and lesser-known works give voice to the next generation of playwrights. Through Raven's Children's Theatre Program, the company seeks to present a wide range of theatrical education and entertainment options applicable across a broad academic spectrum.
