Juno and the Paycock
Written by Sean O’Casey. Directed by Vincent Lee
Set in the Dublin tenements in 1922 Juno and the Paycock is one of Sean O’Casey’s best loved plays. His understanding of the impoverished life that the inhabitants had to endure in these dwellings is evident throughout this play as he gives voice to their every day cares and struggles. The added tension of Ireland’s Civil War is never far away as tragedy strikes hard in household after household. Even in a world of struggle and loss, O’Casey injects moments of warmth and humour that have made this play a favourite for theatre-goers for well-nigh a hundred years.
