Synge's first play, originally performed in 1903, is a bleak one-act set in an isolated farmhouse in Ireland.  A tramp wanders into what seems a tragic scene—a wife mourning her dead, and considerably older, husband.  But when the wife leaves to find her lover, and the supposedly dead man returns to life, events take an unexpected turn.
