      The Playboy of the Western World: An Irish Comedy

      The Theatre at Marietta College will perform The Playboy of the Western World: An Irish Comedy by J.M. Synge at 8:00 p.m., Friday, January 31st, in the Friederich Theater. It is directed by instructor Melissa Hill Grande. Ticket holders are invited to join us after the performance for an opening night celebration!

      One night, a scruffy young stranger, Christy Mahon, stumbles into Michael James Flaherty’s public house on the wild coast of County Mayo in Ireland. After much hemming and hawing, Christy eventually claims he is a decent lad on the run after killing his father. Enjoying the bold story, the locals welcome Christy as a hero, and Flaherty’s barmaid daughter Pegeen Mike falls for him, much to the dismay of her betrothed. What will happen when the truth comes out?

      Scandalous in its time, the first performance in 1907 led to riots as Irish nationalists viewed the play to be an insult against morality and Ireland.

      This show is equivalent to a PG-13 movie rating. 

      Ticket prices are $20 for adults and $15 for senior citizens and students. Tickets are available through
