Just a short note to add to the excellent answer above: Synge’s Playboy of the Western World is hilarious.  Synge originally labeled the work a farce in its early stages, and though he eventually dropped the label from the title, the play is still very much a comedy/farce. Christie Mahon kills his dad, becomes a hero because he kills his dad, then shrinks when his dad shows up still alive.  Though there are many sides to the play, as Synge himself said, humor is a big part of why people like it.
