Modernism Workshop

Professor Rónán McDonald will lead a discussion on J. M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World (1907).

Well before Le Sacre du printemps nearly caused a riot in Paris, a single word in the first performance of J. M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World caused riots in Dublin which had eventually to be suppressed by the police. The play is a founding text of the Irish Literary Revival and remains a masterpiece of twentieth-century theatre.
