Juno is a masterpiece of 20th-century drama, and
this production, with its great ensemble acting and expert direction, brings outits best qualities. Everything about Irish Rep’s O’Casey season has metits high expectations, and one can hardly wait for April 20, when The Plough and the Stars startsperformances.
Under the meticulously calibrated direction of Neil Pepe… this production is a gem of Irish realism, expertly transitioning from humorous banter to life-altering epiphanies.
… superb, searing revival.
O’Casey presents a complex mixture of comedy, politics, song, and mourning, and the director, Neil Pepe, fashions it movingly.
Performed by a dynamic cast led by Ciarán O’Reilly and Maryann Plunkett, Pepe’s take feels fresh and relevant while remaining faithful to O’Casey’s nearly 100-year-old play.
[M]ay I direct your attention to a gem of a revival playing at the Irish Rep with some truly unforgettable performances. Sean O’ Casey’s “Juno and the Paycock” is one of the highlights of this current season.
