The story of an Irishman who becomes the town hero after he boasts of murdering his father. The local are more interested in enjoying hist story than condemning his murderous deed. The Playboy of the Western World, was first performed in the Abbey on 26 January 1907. The comedy attracted a hostile reaction from the Irish public and thereafter a riot ensued. Described as "an unmitigated, protracted libel upon Irish peasant men, and worse still upon Irish girlhood".
