The Playboy of the Western World in Chicago

City Lit Theater

1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave.


15 January
The Playboy of the Western World in Chicago
Christy Mahon comes into Flahertys tavern on the west coast of Ireland and claims to have killed his father with a shovel. The locals are charmed by his boldness and daring, and he becomes a local hero--until the old man shows up. The plays world premiere triggered three nights of riots in Dublin, and fistfights in the aisles when it transferred to New York. City Lits audience is much better behaved.
