Druid’s production of The Playboy of the Western World
During such an uncertain and stressful time for Leaving Cert students, Druid and Wildfire Films have made the 2005 award-winning production of The Playboy of the Western World by JM Synge available online for free as a helpful resource for those studying the text.

In 2005, Druid presented the first-ever staging of all John Millington Synge’s entire theatrical canon including The Playboy of the Western World. Directed by Garry Hynes, starring Aaron Monaghan, Marie Mullen, and Catherine Walsh, this project was filmed live by Wildfire during production.

Synge’s great comic masterpiece tells the story of Christy Mahon, who stumbles into a public house in County Mayo claiming he has killed his father and so capturing the romantic attention of the daughter of the house, Pegeen Mike.

In an effort to make remote learning easier during such unprecedented times, the production is now available online for free and can be accessed by all English teachers and Leaving Cert students. 

We invite students and teachers to tune in, ask questions and give feedback via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram @druidtheatre 

Druid’s The Playboy of the Western World, by JM Synge, directed by Garry Hynes is now available via Vimeo for a limited time.

Students can view the play here - https://vimeo.com/401020599.
