Juno and the Paycock Print
Jack Boyle is out of work and determined to stay that way. He postures and drinks with his sidekick Joxer while the long-suffering Juno balances threats with conjolement to preserve the semblance for family in the squalid tenemant flat. Their son, Johnny, crippled fighting for the IRA, cowers indoors, terrfied of reprisal; his sister Mary has joined the labour movement and is on strike. Sudden news of an inheritance provokes dreams of escape but, even before their rowdy celebrations are done, reality asserts itself as a neighbour's corpse is carried down the stairs - another victim of the bitter civil war. Mary falls for an educated man as the loans stack up, tragedy ensues.
