Season: 1991-1992
The Playboy of the Western World
By  J. M. Synge
Directed by Lelia Kershaw

This most famous of Synge’s works fused the patois of ordinary Irish villagers with Synge’s sophisticated rhetoric. It enraged Irish playgoers with its satire of Irish braggadocio. The play follows the mercurial rise and fall of the character Christy Mahon, whose self-reported murder of his father earns him much admiration until his father shows up alive and in pursuit of his cowardly son.
