Golden Boy of the Ridge is a musical adaptation of J.M. Synge's classic Playboy of the Western World, transplanted from Ireland to Appalachia, and set to a bluegrass-flavored score.  The story is set in the 1930s and all the action takes place in a mountain outpost where J.M. McFarland lives with his daughter Maggie.
