Juno and the Paycock

Resident Repertory Company

“Oh, the dreaming! dreaming! the fortune,
the heart scalding, never satisfying
dreaming, dreaming, dreaming dreaming!
It saves thinking. It saves working.
It saves everything except imagination,
imagination, imagination; and
imagination’s such a fortune that you
can’t bear it without whisky.”
GEORGE BENARD SHAW
JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK” represents O’Casey’s Ireland of the Nineteen Twenties. An Ireland in which fantasy and reality, drunken bravardo and sober courage coalesced inseparabley. This play is one of the funniest and most moving of the century.
