The Playboy of the Western World
On the Peacock stage
Kilmeen Drama Group, based in Rossmore, West Cork, are on of the longest established drama groups in Ireland.
They won the 2013 Abbey Theatre Award at this year’s RTE All Ireland Drama Festival and we are delighted to welcome their production of The Playboy of the Western World onto the Peacock stage.
John Millington Synge’s extraordinary play was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1907.
Pegeen Mike is preparing for her arranged marriage to local farmer Shawn Keogh. These plans are scuppered by the arrival of Christy Mahon, a curious stranger telling tales of a brave and frightening deed.
