The play is set in a rural shebeen on the coast of Co. Mayo, where Margaret Flaherty, or Pegeen Mike as she’s known locally, is preparing for her arranged marriage to local farmer Shawn Keogh. But these plans are scuppered by the arrival of Christy Mahon, a curious stranger telling tales of a brave and frightening deed. As word spreads of Christy’s story, it grabs the attention of the local women, but while Christy is enjoying his newfound fame his celebrity status is short lived, with the arrival of another walking stranger.
