Synge Festival: The Playboy of the Western World
October 17, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until October 20, 2019
A young man walks into a rural tavern and declares that he has murdered his abusive father in self-defense. He is beloved by the locals and heralded as a hero until the truth of his past is revealed. A riotous comedy, J.M. Synge’s timely tale looks at the power of personality over facts, challenges the wisdom of popular opinion, and asks us what separates criminality from heroism.
