The Playboy of the Western World is a three-act play written by Irish playwright John Millington Synge and first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, on 26 January 1907. It is set in Michael James Flaherty's public house in County Mayo (on the west coast of Ireland) during the early 1900s. It tells the story of Christy Mahon, a young man running away from his farm, claiming he killed his father.
Riots greeted the first performance of The Playboy of the Western World at Dublin's Abbey Theatre on 26 January 1907. Eggs, potatoes and even a slice of fruit cake were hurled at the actors during subsequent performances, and it seems unlikely that much of the actual play could have been heard in the uproar. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World, with the two other plays in this v Riots greeted the first performance of The Playboy of the Western World at Dublin's Abbey Theatre on 26 January 1907.
This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the original
This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the original. Due to its age, it may contain imperfections such as marks. There is a fine preface preceding "Playboy" by Synge himself that is well-worth reading to better understand his inspiration in writing this great play. Truly he writes here: "On the stage, one must have reality and one must have joy", and one has both in full measure in this play.
John Millington Synge was born in 1871, of Anglo-Irish Protestant land owning stock. He graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, and then spent a few years wandering on the continent. Synge went to the Aran Islands in 1898, and subsequently revisited them several times. In the Shadow of the Glen and Riders to the Sea were both completed in the summer of 1902, and both were taken from material he had collected on the islands. So much so that you cans find yourself mimicking, at lest in your mind, the lyrical voices of these characters.

A certain number of the phrases I employ I have heard also from herds and fishermen along the coast from Kerry to Mayo, or from beggar-women and ballad-singers nearer Dublin; and I am glad to acknowledge how much I owe to the folk imagination of these fine people.
