Written in 1907, “Playboy of the Western World” is considered the Irish playwright John Millington Synge’s masterpiece. The play tells the story of Christy Mahon a young man, who escapes to a small town claiming he killed his father. Enraptured by the newcomer’s story, the townspeople make him into a celebrity instead of condemning him. Christy especially captures the attention of the women with his charisma, specifically the bar-maid Pegeen Mike and the Widow Quin.
