Irish Repertory Theatre's The Playboy of the Western World takes their opening night bow July 2.

Christy Mahon stars as the title's playboy, an unexceptional young man who wins the admiration of his fellows by recounting the scandalous tale of his father's murder. Taking full advantage of his new popularity, Christy begins to court fiery redhead Pegeen Mike — until his father shows up, threatening to spoil everything. The Playboy of the Western World plays through Aug. 18.
