Dark Irish Comedy The Playboy of the Western World
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.
