Playboy of the Western World –

The Musical

Music composed by Justin McCarthy


Lime Tree Theatre | Thur, 5th Oct | 8pm |€20/€18


Set in a 1950s radio studio, this unique and critically acclaimed version of the classic ‘Playboy of the Western World’ is a staged version of the award-winning RTE Radio Musical.

With a live five piece band, an original soundtrack and a foley artist, ‘This production offers pure escapism, quality and fun’ according to Judy Murphy in The Galway City Tribune. ‘Justin Mc Carthy takes the familiar Synge speeches and re-mints them as toe-tapping sing-along compelling brilliant songs.’ was the verdict of the Galway Advertiser’s Charlie MacBride.

The Playboy of the Western World -The Musical is a contemporary musical version of a classic play that allows Synge’s genius to shine throughout.
