JM Synge’s Comedy in Three Acts
Directed by Kate Canning
A small community in County Mayo is thrown into turbulence with the arrival of Christy Mahon, a mysterious stranger claiming to have killed his father. The local men aren’t sure if he’s a danger and the local women find him fascinating. Michael James Flaherty the local publican takes a shine to him, and his daughter Pegeen Mike finds his company preferable to that of her dull fiancée, Shawn Keogh. However it transpires that Christy’s father is not dead afterall, when Old Mahon arrives with a gaping head wound, searching for his ungrateful son.
