The Playboy of the Western World

Saturday, Apr 19 8:00p

Enjoy a fine local production of the witty and insightful play by Irish playwright and poet John Millington Synge (1871-1909)

The story takes place in the early 1900s at a pub on the west coast of Ireland, where a young man running away from his farm, claiming he killed his father, finds the locals are more interested in vicariously enjoying his story than condemning the immorality of what he did.
