Juno and the the Paycock by Sean O'CaseyA play that presents a compelling look at the family conflicts of struggling Irish matriarch Juno Boyle, who tries to keep her children safe and her husband sober despite his foolishness. The setting is a Dublin tenement at the beginning of the Irish rebellion in the 1920s. Considered a classic, it is very popular in Ireland and has been produced throughout the world. It is at once funny, sad, and tragic.Gather with us in Meeting Room 1 on the 2nd floor to discuss this remarkable play. No registration is required and everyone is welcome!
