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

Quotes & Highlights
- " ... one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written. It is superbly, even flamboyantly, theatrical, complying with the classic unities of time, place and action, and Miller holds the interest with the skill of a born story-teller." —The New York Times
Director Michael Menendian said, "I have wanted to stage The Price for nearly 20 years. I consider this to be one of his finest plays, dealing with universal issues of family loyalty, sibling rivalry and commitment to a certain code of conduct. I want the audience to question what they would do in the shoes of the characters."
