  The Synge Triptych at Sedgwick Theater

The Synge Triptych

Sedgwick Theater
7137 Germantown Ave. Philadelphia

Three of Synge's celebrated short plays will be performed in one evening. An older husband pretends that he is dead in order to test his younger wife's fidelity in a black comedy, In the Shadow of the Glen. In The Tinker's Wedding, a gypsy woman tries to find respectability by convincing a local priest to marry her to her sweetheart, only to find that marriage can be an expensive and soul-compromising business. And in his finest tragedy, Riders to the Sea, Synge depicts a family's hopeless and fatal struggle to make a living off the impersonal but relentlessly cruel sea. Presented in rotating repertory with The Playboy of the Western World as part of The Synge Festival
