Pepperdine to present ‘The Playboy of the Western World’

The Pepperdine University Fine Arts Division Theatre Department will present “The Playboy of the Western World” by J.M. Synge at 7:30 p.m. Tues. through Fri., Jan. 30 to Feb. 2, and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sat., Feb. 3, at the Malibu campus’ Helen E. Lindhurst Theatre, 24255 Pacific Coast Hwy., Malibu.

The show is directed by George Neilson.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for Pepperdine students and $12 for Pepperdine faculty and staff. Tickets are available from the box office at (310) 506-4522.

The show, which premiered in 1907, focuses on a shy, young stranger who enthralls patrons of a pub with grandiose stories of his exploits, worthy of a 19th century “playboy.” Rather than ostracizing him, the patrons idolize him, until a comical turn of events makes them reconsider their opinion of him.

The presentation is part of the university’s Mary PickfordStotsenberg Performances Series.
