Sunday,  4:00 p.m.  Doors open 3:00 p.m.  Tickets,  €16.

Set in a working class tenement of Dublin in 1922,  during the Civil War.

Juno and the Paycock is one of Sean O’Casey’s finest plays.

And a masterpiece of Irish drama.

The story takes place during one of the most turbulent periods in Irish history.

The play is filled with O’Casey’s trademark humour and peopled with a host of characters.

Razor-sharp and hardworking Juno Boyle.

Her work-shy husband “Captain” Jack Boyle.

And his soak and manipulator friend,  Joxer Daly.

We share the Boyle family’s trials and tribulations,  laughter and tears.

As well as the inevitable consequences when personal meets political in civil war.
