Folie à Deux Productions presents
The Playboy of the Western World
by J M Synge
In a local village pub, deep in rural Ireland, a charming stranger swaggers in with a bold claim: that he has killed his own father.
As drunken men gather round to hear tales of his bravado and young ladies vie for his attention, the traveller becomes a hero. But not all is as it seems…
One of Ireland’s most celebrated plays, JM Synge’s savagely witty masterpiece draws us into the sleepy traditions of rural County Mayo through the exuberance of one dreamer.
Folie à Deux Productions return to Southwark Playhouse following their critically acclaimed productions of Summer and Smoke and I Am A Camera.
