…J.M. Synge’s The Playboy of the Western World, with what sounds like an all-Irish cast, would be hard to improve on. It dates from 1973, and stars Cyril Cusack, an actor who made over 150 films if TV dramas are legendary (I’ll never forget his Embers), and here he plays Christie Mahon, the “playboy”, with all the evocative enthusiasm and feigned melancholy at his disposal. © 2012 Taipei Times
