We saw this show on the 1st preview night, so I can only imagine how magnificent it is now. All four cast members are totally committed to their roles but, for me, Denis Conway as George and Sophie Robinson as Honey were the stand outs on the night.

With a classic play it is vital that the production and performance should be first class and as usual with the Gate Theatre they put on an exceptional show. The four actors are all superb and play their parts with subtlety. It... More

Wednesday of the past week I had an appointment in Dublin that would keep me for one hour. Since I was going to be free for a few hours before my bus home was ready to roll, I took advantage of the evening and headed over to the Gate Theatre to see "Juno and the Paycock." Sean O'Casey's drama illustrates... More

Small intimate theatre with very comfortable seats, wd were in front row no hard sell for drinks etc the play itself was sensitively and beautifully portrayed demonstrating how tough tenement life was with ocasional glimpses of hope, set in a backdrop of the rising the value of community and helping each other was obvious
