In 1907, Irish playwright John Synge shocked all of Dublin with his new,
wildly funny drama set in very rural Ireland. He called it "Playboy of the
Western World,"back when "playboy"meant a fun, athletic young man, and the
western world was a rocky, slimly populated tidal flat that seemed like
the whole world to its simple inhabitants.

 

In 2004, Peter Gould directed a
zany, physical production at the old NEYT. This October, Peter and a fine
new troupe of young senior actors bring "Playboy of the Western World" to
life again on the NEYT stage, with music and dance and a vintage-style box
set built by Rick Barron and his tech students. Don't miss it: this play
is the source and inspiration for all the great Irish comedies that have
followed it over the past one hundred years.
