Riots greeted the first performance of this 1907 comic masterpiece of the Irish Literary Renaissance. L.A. Theatre Works reprises the Pacific Resident Theatre's acclaimed production.


What the Critics Say

"This production is a delight. Synge is difficult for American audiences because he writes in Irish dialect. However, this cast, led by Orson Bean and Alley Mills, delivers every line of Synge's poetic script clearly." (AudioFile)
