Juno and the Paycock is a play by Sean O’Casey, and one of the most highly regarded and often performed plays in the whole world. The play is set in the Dublin slums or tenements in the years of the Irish Civil War 1922 and 1923. Juno Boyle is married to Boyle who calls himself Captain Boyle. Boyle is a useless and irresponsible drunkard who shuns the reality of work at every stage in the play, and spends his time in the pub drinking with his friend Joxer Daly.
The Merry Wives of Windsor is the most purely farcical of all of Shakespeare’s plays. Sir John Falstaff conspires to seduce Mrs. Page and Mrs. Ford, the wives of two prominent Windsor citizens. The women play along with him in order to expose him as a preposterous lecher. Then, to complicate matters, the insanely jealous Mr. Ford disguises himself as one “Mr. Brook” and hires Falstaff to procure Mrs. Ford for him in order to (so he plans) reveal her suspected infidelity…. What will this all lead to?
