The creators, producers, cast and crew of Playboy, The Musical are delighted to come together once more in support of Pete Nelson, for a raucous and rollicking reworking of Synge’s classic play, set in a radio studio in 1959 and adapted by Diarmuid de Faoite & Justin McCarthy.

The show has been staged previously in IMMA, Muckross, Coole Park, Town Hall Theatre & Galway Summer Garden to critical acclaim:

“This is a production that offers pure escapism, quality and fun….it's a tonic”
Judy Murphy - About Town, Galway City Tribune

“Justin McCarthy takes the familiar Synge speeches and re-mints them as toe-tapping sing-along compelling brilliant songs.”
Charlie Mac Bride Galway Advertiser

The audience reactions were equally positive:
***This is an absolutely stunning production. Great, great music, lashings of mischief and a cast so talented they make it look easy ***

***What a toe-tapping tonic! Great production, wonderful cast, fab music & true to Synge***

***A highly enthusiastic audience needed little incitement to applaud and got to their feet to join in with a rousing finale***
