When a mysterious stranger seeks shelter in a remote village in County Mayo he quickly beguiles the locals with his tall and dramatic tale of bravery in the face of danger. As his confidence grows, the local men gather round to hear of his adventures and the girls to catch his attention. When his tale turns out to be less exciting or real than they first thought, the simmering resentment of the villagers threatens his life and liberty. This lyrical masterpiece skillfully blends elements of comedy, tragedy and farce and has forever established Synge’s reputation as one of Ireland’s greatest writers.

Nightly performances at 7.45 pm Tuesday, 20th July to Saturday, 24th July with a matinee at 2.30 pm on Saturday.

Tickets – £11.00 to £13.00, Streaming – £7.00.
