The Playboy of the Western World

November 3 - November 20

$45

First staged in the Abby Theatre in 1907, The Playboy of the Western World is arguably Ireland’s most famous play. Now the story is retold by Nigerian-Irish playwright, Bisi Adigun and one of Ireland’s best-known writers, Roddy Doyle.

This laugh-out-loud comedy tells the story of Christy – a scallywag playboy running from his misdeeds. The original farmers are now tough Dublin gangsters and “Christy” is re-imagined as Nigerian refugee, Christopher Malomo. This adaptation presents modern-day, urban Ireland and highlights the changes that have occurred in the country, including the issues of immigration and inequality.
