Riders to the Sea Overview

Riders to the Sea is a play written by John Millington Synge and performed for the first time in 1904. A play consisting of just one act, it was performed in Dublin at the Molesworth Hall by four main characters and several supporting cast members. In 1911, Edward J. O’Brien added an introduction extolling that many believed this was Synge's single greatest play written, and likely documents his own experiences based on his second visit to the Aran Islands.
