Riders to the Sea is extolled to have been John Millington Synge's greatest play, and is likely based on the second visit he made to the Aran Islands.

Synge, including The Aran Islands, and The Playboy of the Western World and Riders to the Sea, and more on LitCharts assigns a color and icon to each theme in Riders to the Sea, which you can use to track the themes throughout the work. The sea’s vast natural power, which takes the lives of all of the family’s men, is a constant threat to the play’s characters.

The scene of "Riders to the Sea" is laid in a cottage on Inishmaan, the middle and most interesting island of the Aran group. While Synge was on Inishmaan, the story came to him of a man whose body had been washed up on the far away coast of Donegal, and who, by reason of certain peculiarities of dress, was suspected to be from the island. The result was, in addition to the journal The Aran Islands (), two short plays for the Abbey: The Shadow of the Glen (), in which a comic resurrection interrupts a widow's marriage bargaining, and Riders to the Sea (), about a mother's loss of her last son, a perfect condensed tragedy and probably the finest one-act play.
