It’s 1952. Peggy runs a small bar in the sleepy village of Mayaro. Out of the darkness a mysterious stranger stumbles in. With a voice like honey, tantalising the girls, he tells a terrible story. As he weaves his magic spell on Peggy, her forthcoming nuptials to Stanley are thrown into doubt and the village is plunged into uproar.
While the women vie for this stranger’s attention, the men plot his downfall. Will the “Playboy” win or will events conspire to unmask his wild tales of derring-do?
Based on the Irish classic The Playboy Of The Western World by John Millington Synge, Mustapha Matura’s hilarious reinvention Playboy Of The West Indies has been delighting audiences and critics alike world-wide for over 35 years. Now bursting with songs, this classic play has been transformed into a glorious new musical.
