In one of the seminal works of the Irish Renaissance, J. M. Synge tells the tale of Christy Mahon, who believes he has murdered his father during a fight and flees to a remote rural village. A local publican gives him refuge, and Christy impresses the villagers with his tale of bloody violence and wins the heart of the innkeeper's daughter. The play caused Irish National Theatre audiences to riot when it premiered in 1907.
