Directed by Andrew Flynn
Starring Hilda Fay as Juno and Aidan Kelly as Boyle (The Paycock) alongside a stellar cast - Phelim Drew, Desmond Eastwood, Ger Howard, Stephen Jones, Andy Kelleher, Des Keogh, Rosaleen Linehan and Clare Monnelly.
Seán O’Casey masterpiece Juno and the Paycock is a mesmerising mix of comedy and tragedy. Set in the grim slums of Dublin during the Irish Civil War, Juno and the Paycock tells the story of the Boyle family struggling to survive the realities of tenement life. Jack Boyle and his persuasive pal Joxer would rather spend their time drinking than looking for work to support the family, as Juno – the matriarch of the Boyles – desperately tries to hold them all together in the face of adversity and misfortune.
