Ireland’s most noted Playwrights
It was a collaboration between one of Ireland’s most noted playwrights and cinema’s greatest directors, yet the 1930 release of Juno and the Paycock is often neglected in the repertoire of both men. Brian O’Flaherty’s documentary aims to find out why.
Featuring extensive, incisive interviews with family members, academics, directors and actors, including Shivaun O’Casey, Prof Charles Barr, Neilí Conroy and Peter Sheridan, it tells the story of how these two iconic figures met and the legacy of the film.
