About this show

Dublin's Abbey Theatre presents its signature piece, The Playboy of the Western World, directed by Ben Barnes. This production still possesses the power to provoke and captivate audiences worldwide. Its story of a stranger who seduces the inhabitants of a small village on the coast of Mayo with his 'gallous' tale of killing his father, provoked riots among the audience during its first staging in 1907, causing national outrage and sensation.
