This spring, the Summer Savoyards will, for the third year in a row, be presenting a spring comedy fundraiser. Arsenic and Old Lace in 2018 and The Importance of Being Earnest in 2019 both sold out for every single performance.

 

We invite you to participate in this year's production.

 

The Playboy of the Western World is a 1907 comedy by John Millington Synge, the dominant playwright of the Irish Literary Revival.

 

It's the story of Pegeen Mike, an impassioned Irish girl--betrothed to a weak, religious man--who falls in love with a drifter that wanders into her father's pub. His wild tales of murder and adventure stir her soul. But this is Ireland, 1907. Romance doesn't flourish in a world of petty gossip, local color, and the famously dark and sharp Irish sense of humor.

 

We bring to this production a deep sense of historical and literary context, Savoyards' considerable technical and artistic skills, and a dedication to good fun and killer comedy.

 

A description of the available roles and sides are below: please email Mary Donnelly at mangansis@gmail.com with any questions.


Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors and students. Seating is limited.

 

Snacks and beverages, including beer, wine and a signature cocktail, will be available for purchase. The Savoyards and the Bundy will share the net profits from ticket sales. Proceeds
from the concessions and a gift basket raffle will benefit the Savoyards’ July 24-26 production of G&S’s “Ruddigore.”
