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.


   




Review By Bradley Winterton,Taipei Times,August 2012

…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
