It’s a play that’s rarely been off the stage since its debut at The Abbey Theatre back in 1924, the second part of Seán O’Casey’s Dublin trilogy also attracted the great and good over the decades.

Did you know, for example, that the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, took on Juno And The Paycock back in 1938.

Sir Chubs’ may not have done O’Casey’s work justice, but, the fact that the great man was drawn to this powerful work – along with many other filmmakers, stage directors and acclaimed actors – reveals its potency, and pulling power.

And now it’s the turn of The Greystones Players, as they prepare for their next glittering production at The Whale.

As director Aideen Walton searches out a fresh voice for this much-loved old play, it’s clear that for such a mission, casting is key. And that cast has just been revealed, kids.

Taking on the part of Juno Boyle is young Laura Wood whilst Liam O’Doherty plays Captain Boyle, Conor Horan, Johnny Boyle and Georgina Lawless takes on the role of Mary Boyle.

Also in the cast is Hugh Jordan (Joxer), Gareth Walker-Ayers (Jerry Devine), Eoin O’Mahoney (George Bentham), Joe O’Gorman (Needle Nugent), Orlagh Ryan (Mrs Madigan), Oonagh Hodkinson (Mrs Tancred), Joanne O’Shea and Sophie O’Connor as the neighbours, Cian Hall as the 1st irregular, and Christopher Fitzgerald and Nicole McLaughlin as the furniture removal men.

Running from Thursday, December 6th to Saturday the 9th, you can grab your tickets right about here, and find out more about the production on de ould Facebook here.
