John Synge’s classic Irish comedy is a thrilling mix of humor, romance, and adventure that has delighted audiences around the world for over 100 years. 

In a pub in a small town in rural Ireland, a handsome stranger arrives to woo the beautiful Irish lass Pegeen. Her father is outraged, her fiancé is dismayed, and the villagers are star-struck. But the stranger has a dark secret, and the townsfolk soon discover that not everything is as it seems with this popular young ‘playboy.’ By turns lyrical and earthy, Synge’s sharp satire of celebrity culture is one of the most beloved shows of all time.
