Riders to the Sea & Shadow of the Glen are both one act plays by J.M. Synge, an Irish playwright in the early 20th Century who made it his life's mission to accurately depict the people of the Irish Countryside.Riders to the Sea is a Tragedy in One Act about a mother and her daughters dealing with a familial curse that seems to cause all of the men in the family to die. Anxieties come to a peak when the last, remaining son is getting ready to ride out to sea in order to try and provide for his family.Shadow of the Glen is a contemplative Drama in One Act about how a women's integrity can be unjustly scrutinized through hearsay and speculation, and how forcing those opinions out into the open can have disastrous consequences for everyone involved.
