A stark, uncompromising tragedy which unsparingly shows that Irish gaiety and song are the despairing camouflage for a dirge. It is the waste that is tragic - Juno's staunchness has to suffer a shiftless strutting husband, "Captain" Jack Boyle, the "Paycock" of the title. True, there are moments of raucous comedy, but they are satire: O'Casey's revelations by antithesis.

Summary

A stark, uncompromising tragedy which unsparingly shows that Irish gaiety and song are the despairing camouflage for a dirge. It is the waste that is tragic - Juno's staunchness has to suffer a shiftless strutting husband, "Captain" Jack Boyle, the "Paycock" of the title. True, there are moments of raucous comedy, but they are satire: O'Casey's revelations by antithesis.

The most famous play by this remarkable Irish dramatist. Juno and the Paycock has been produced throughout the world and offers a compelling look at the family conflicts of struggling Irish matriarch Juno Boyle's Herculean attempts to keep her children safe and her husband "Captain" Jack Boyle sober despite his foolish schemes and the ongoing "troubles" in early 20th century Dublin.
