Riders to the sea were a regional play but it deals with human nature which is the same everywhere. So it has a universal appeal. Riders to the Sea are based on Synge’s observations of the life people of Aran Islands. Synge went to these islands, at the proposal of W.B.Yeats. He paid several visits to these islands, stayed with the people and observed their manners, habits, beliefs and mode of life. This is the life presented in the play. At the same time the play has a universal implication. It describes the anguish of the people caused by cruel fate. In this play the agent of destiny is the sea. Elsewhere he agent may be the hatred of the gods or the cruel laws of society. The suffering of a mother is the same whether she is a peasant woman or a queen, whether she belongs to Ireland or to Newfoundland, whether her sons die in drowning accidents or in war or in famines, or in an air crash or even by the unintentional leakage of poison gas. Riders to the sea, therefore, have a universal appeal.
