About this show

The Abbey Theatre presents The Playboy of the Western World by J.M. Synge. Nearly a century after its electrifying, riot-causing Dublin premiere, this brilliant comedy continues to enthrall audiences with its mock-heroic epic of Christy Mahon, a young and impassioned renegade who bursts into a coastal County Mayo pub one autumn evening with a gloriously, seductive tale of death and destruction, thoroughly captivating the publican's beautiful daughter, Pegeen Mike, and all the local regulars.
