After an absence of nearly two and half years, Carlow Little Theatre Society return to the stage at the George Bernard Shaw Theatre this summer with their production of Juno and the Paycock by Sean O'Casey.

A classic within the canon of O'Casey works, Juno and the Paycock is a mesmerising mix of comedy and tragedy, set in the slums of Dublin during the Irish civil war of 1922–23. It chronicles the fortunes of the impoverished Boyle family, into which O’Casey pours all of the strengths and shortcomings of Irish character and the grim realities of tenement life, throwing into relief the challenges, swagger and inflated rhetoric of the men and women struggling for Irish independence.

'𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐨 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐏𝐚𝐲𝐜𝐨𝐜𝐤' is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. and will be Directed by Mark Cradock.
