The Journey of 'The Playboy'

Tuesday, 17 January 2017, 4 – 5pm

The Journey of 'The Playboy'

Playwright and director at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, John Millington Synge (1871–1909) remains one of the most important figures in Irish drama. His most celebrated work, 'The Playboy of the Western World', caused riots when it was first performed in 1907 and has since been the subject of major revivals. Celebrating the 110th anniversary of its first performance, 'The Journey of "The Playboy"' illustrates the development of Synge’s most famous play, which follows Christy Mahon, on the run in the west of Ireland having 'murdered' his father.
