Juno is struggling to cajole Jack back into work as he spends his time drinking with his sidekick. Their son is crippled after fighting for the IRA, and their daughter has joined a union and gone on strike.
Unexpected news of an inheritance brightens up their lives, only for reality to dash their dreams of escape when a neighbour is carried down the stairs, dead -– another victim of the troubles.
"Juno and the Paycock" offers a devastating portrait of wasted potential in a Dublin torn apart by the chaos of the Irish Civil War.
