Sean O’Casey’s playful scrounger from the classic, Juno and The Paycock, takes centre stage in this award-winning play from the pen of Eddie Naughton.
With events that were to alter the course of Irish history as a backdrop, Joxer Daly Esq. charts an everyman journey from respectable member of The Foresters Association to a vagabond scraping by with only his wit to use as collateral.
From the 1913 Lock Out, 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 Literatures most loveable chancers.
