£4.99

Available in Stock

Although a celebration of Irish life, language and humour, Synge’s comic masterpiece was seen as morally offensive and patronizing towards the Irish peasantry when it was premiered in 1907: it provoked not only controversy but actual rioting. This recording is of a classic production, with a cast led by the Irish actors Siobhan McKenna and Cyril Cusack. 2 CDs; total time 1hr 27mins.
