About this Recording

SYNGE, J.M.: Playboy of the Western World (The) (Unabridged)

One of the best-known Irish playwrights, John Millington Synge premièred The Playboy of the Western World in 1907. It immediately provoked controversy, eventually resulting in the infamous ‘Playboy’ riots. It has been recorded and adapted many times, but this timeless recording stars the Irish actors who made it a classic, including Siobhan McKenna and Cyril Cusack.
