The Playboy of the Western World
By J.M. Synge
Directed by Paul Mullins
May 29 - June 23, 2013
Ireland’s great playwright and poet, J.M. Synge, has penned a grand adventure — part tall-tale, part outrageous comedy and part bittersweet parable. A young country lad’s transformation from beaten-down weakling to celebrated “playboy” captures the poetic heart of the wild Irish imagination in magnificent, lyrical style.
