1977 – “The Playboy of the Western World” by John Millington SyngePosted on: June 12, 1977
Christy Mahon, a young man, stumbles into Flaherty’s tavern on the west coast of County Mayo. There he impresses the townsfolk with his story of how in affect he struck and killed his father. When his father who survived the attack turns up, the townsfolk call him a liar which leads Christy to attack his father once again. When the father is believed to be dead the people bind Christy and want to execute him, but in the nick of time the father arrives anew, surprisingly having survived the attack again.
