The Civic, Thursday 12th September

Sean O'Casey's playful scrounger from the classic, Juno and the Paycock, takes centre stage at The Civic in this intriguing new play from the pen of Eddie Naughton (Innisfallen Fare Thee Well). With events that were to alter the course of Irish history as a backdrop, Joxer Daly Esq. charts an everyman journey from the respectable member of The Forresters Association to a vagabond scraping by with only his wit to use as collateral.

From the 1913 Lockout, to the Rising – and the events of O'Casey's classic The Plough and The Stars – to the birth of a new divided Nationalism, in Juno and The Paycock, we see it all through the eyes of a survivor like no other. Joxer Daly is an ordinary person trying to navigate the difficult waters of what was Dublin in the period leading up to the birth of a Republic. Brilliantly performed by Phelim Drew, Joxer's love of language, humour, Literature and song, together with a drinkers purple recollection, makes this a performance like no other. Entertaining and funny, Joxer Daly Esq. is a thought provoking gander at one of Irish literature's most loveable chancers!

★★★★★ – Mail on Sunday.
