De J. M. Synge


Résumé: In a tiny pub in rural Mayo, the peace of the tightly nit community is blown apart when a stranger stumbles in. When the locals draw out Christy Mahon's secret, they react in unexpected ways. His story has the most powerful effect on the women of the community, in particular Pegeen Mike, the landlord's fiery daughter.

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGE for THE EVENING STANDARD liked this production saying, “Playboy keeps us balanced on dramatic tenterhooks.” CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “In its mixture of ribald comedy and raw tragedy, in its blending of dialect speech and great poetry, in its masterful plotting and richness of character, it seems like the template on which Irish theatre has been built. “ BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES loved the play saying, “The Playboy is a masterwork….Is there a play which deals more effectively with the savagery within, the lure of lawlessness, the dangers of fantasy, and several other subjects that still preoccupy dramatists in our islands? I can’t think of one.” JOHN PETER for THE SUNDAY TIMES says, "The National Theatre has come up trumps with Fiona Buffini's fiercely gripping production." JONATHAN MYERSON for THE INDEPENDENT was not impressed by the play saying,”.. the realism only shines a cruel light on Synge's wordiness, forcing the cast into arch and laboured comedy … raining unrealistic blows on one another, or whispering so as to be unheard a mere six feet away. This is crude playmaking…”
