explores secret revelations of the young mistress of J.M. Synge, one of Ireland's greatest playwrights. Synge's brief yet passionate affair with Mary "Molly" Allgood, considered a "shockingly unsuitable" mistress due to her working-class upbringing as well as her religious and political affiliations, was tragically cut short due to his rapidly deteriorating health. Synge died of complications related to Hodgkin's lymphoma at 37 (he and Molly were engaged to be married at the time), yet his work, some of which was inspired by their relationship, still greatly impacts audiences and writers to this day. This original Scena Theatre production, written by award-winning Irish author and Georgetown Professor Emeritus George O'Brien, is presented at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
