The Playboy of the Western World
By J.M. Synge
Directed by James Tasse
On a fateful night in Flaherty’s bar, hugging the stormy coast of Mayo, Christy Mahon holds forth. Seeking to boost his fame by recounting the scandalous tale of his father’s murder, he regales the patrons with poetic hyperbole. The beer flows while the story, along with the teller’s reputation, begins to unravel. This dark, deeply humorous drama examines the lengths we will go to create a myth that may be more exciting—and treacherous—than the reality.
Curtains rise at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, with a matinée on Sunday, March 14.
