Juno and the Paycock at WSC

Juno and the Paycock

The Irish tenements of the early 1920s were a close-knit and crowded place. Seated cheek-by-jowl at the Washington Shakespeare Company’s compelling Juno and the Paycock, Sean O’Casey’s tragicomic story of a family’s demise, we feel a bit like neighbors at the window. And as we watch the pressures of poverty, civil war and simple bad luck unravel the Boyles, we see that so much of what they do and say is defined by this largely unseen cohort: the neighbors, the apparent keepers of the community values. To March 20. Artisphere, 1101 Wilson Blvd. Arlington. Tickets are $21.50 to $36.50. Call 703-875-1100 or visit washingtonshakespeare.org.
