Our new adaptation “The Playgirl of The Western World”, is a classic Irish theatre play about a village that is disturbed by the arrival of an outsider. The show is translated into English from the original Irish-English (Hiberno-English) version.

On the west coast of County Mayo Christy Mahon stumbles into Flaherty’s tavern. There he claims that he is on the run because he killed his own father by driving a  Spade into his head. Flaherty praises Christy for his boldness, and Flaherty’s daughter (and the barmaid) Pegeen, falls in love with Christy, to the dismay of her betrothed, Shawn Keogh.


De nieuwe bewerking “The Playgirl of The Western World” is een geweldig toneelstuk over een stadje dat wordt verstoord door de komst van een buitenstaander. 

De voorstelling is Engels gesproken en een vertaling uit het Hiberno-Engels (Iers-Engels dialect).


Aan de westkust van County Mayo strompelt Christy Mahon de taverne van Flaherty binnen. Daar beweert hij dat hij op de vlucht is omdat hij zijn eigen vader heeft vermoord door een Schep in zijn hoofd te drijven. Flaherty prijst Christy voor zijn vrijmoedigheid en Flaherty’s dochter (en barmeisje), Pegeen, wordt verliefd op Christy, tot ontzetting van haar verloofde, Shawn Keogh.
