The Playboy of the Western World

by J.M. Synge

Set in a cottage on the North-West coast of Ireland during the early 1900s the play tells the story of Christy Mahon, a young man supposedly running away having killed his father. Following Christy's arrival at the cottage the locals are more interested in vicariously enjoying his story than in condemning his morality. When The Playboy first opened in Dublin it was the cause of riots as Catholic protesters voiced their objections to the portrayal of rural Irish Catholic morality.
