The South Puget Sound Community College Drama Program presents Playboy of the Western World at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Black Box Theater, beginning Feb. 27 with a special preview night.

Playboy of the Western World takes a satirical look at Catholicism and Irish “peasantry,” even sparking a 1907 Dublin riot when first performed. In the early 20th century, to be a playboy meant to be a trixster, or hoaxer. And that’s exactly what main character Christy Mahon is, thanks to his ability to spin a good tale. Mahon describes the murder of his father, very convincingly too. Until the dead man shows up.

Beginning with a special preview on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m., the play runs from through March 2, and again from March 6-9. All performances begin at 8 p.m. except the March 2 and March 9 dates, which begin at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $13 for seniors and military. The play is free to all SPSCC students, staff and faculty. Tickets will be available at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts box office, online at, or by calling (360) 753-8586.
