Photo Flash: Inside Conservatory Theatre Company's THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD

Point Park University's Conservatory Theatre Company closes its 2013-2014 season with a production of John Millington Synge's classic Irish comedy, The Playboy of the Western World, now through April 19 in the Rauh Theatre at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. Scroll down to see some photos from the production!

Directed by Kim Martin, The Playboy of the Western World is set in the early 1900s in a country tavern, where Christy Mahon hilariously enjoys his celebrity amongst townsfolk while, unbeknownst to him, the truth will soon be revealed. When this play first appeared on stage in 1907, it started the Playboy Riots in Dublin and, years later, more controversy in its 1911 New York appearance.

Performances will be at 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, and 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Please note, there will be no performance on Easter, April 20. Instead, there will be a performance at 8 p.m., Wednesday, April 16. Tickets range from $18 to $20 and can be purchased by calling the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412.392.8000 or online at www.pittsburghplayhouse.com. Patrons can take advantage of the "Pay what you will" performance at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 12, subject to availability.

Kim Martin has directed The REP's productions of Becky's New Car, The Lonesome West, and Mojo. A graduate of Point Park University, Martin has directed, acted in, and stage-managed more than 150 productions. Some favorites include Glengarry Glen Ross, Guys & Dolls, Drinking in America, Deathtrap, The Dumb Waiter, Annie, La Ronde and Three Sisters. Martin is the Director of Production at the Playhouse, and she serves as an adjunct faculty member instructing students pursuing a technical theatre degree.

The Conservatory Theatre Company's production features scenic design by Gianni Downs, costumes by Joan Markert, lighting by Scott Nelson, and sound by Steve Shapiro.
