The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis will be staging Juno and the Paycock, directed by Joe Dowling, May 23 – June 28, 2015 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage.
To celebrate its 110th anniversary the Abbey Theatre has produced a pictorial timeline of 110 important moments in its history from Éamon de Valera’s performance in A Christmas Hamper in 1905 to their writers salons nurturing the next generation of irish playwrights. Sean O’Casey features in two of these first as a listing in the submission logbook for Plough and the Stars and then in a stark image of the Abbey damaged terribly by fire in 1951 during a production of that same play. Remarkably the cast and crew managed to perform the play at the Peacock the next night.
Niamh Cusack and Des McAleer star in Sean O’Casey’s classic Irish drama. Directed by Gemma Bodinetz, Juno and the Paycock will be at the Liverpool Playhouse 1-18 October 2014. Trailer by Farrows Creative.
