An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, repeating until January 26, 2014
JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK is Sean O’Casey’s extravagant portrait of the poetically comic and tragic world of Dublin torn apart by the chaos of the Irish Civil War. The gestures of life are often broad, and the speech torrential, as Jack Boyle and sidekick Joxer Daly’s drinking and posturing rise to comic heights. When the news of an unexpected inheritance arrives, the Boyle family sees a flame of hope as the heroic Juno dreams of taking war-crippled son, Johnny, and his sister, young Mary, out of their squalid surroundings into a better life. However, hopes are dashed and reality returns as a twist of fate brings their dreams crashing down around them.
The cast of JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK features J. Smith-Cameron as Juno Boyle, Ciarán O’Reilly as “Captain” Jack Boyle, Ed Malone as Johnny Boyle, Mary Mallen as Mary Boyle, John Keating as Joxer Daly, as well as Ciarán Byrne, Terry Donnelly, Laurence Lowry, Kern McFadden, David O’Hara, James Russell, and Fiana Toibin.
