Juno and the Paycock Tickets On Sale Soon

Tony Award nominee and star of Succession J. Smith-Cameron treads the West End boards in a huge new revival of Irish classic Juno and the Paycock. Appearing opposite Olivier and Academy Award winner Mark Rylance, Smith-Cameron plays beleaguered but resilient Juno Boyle in Seán O’Casey's timeless masterpiece - a role she last performed in New York in 2014.

Don’t miss director Matthew Warchus' (Matilda the Musical) hotly anticipated centenary production, playing at the Gielgud Theatre for a strictly limited season this year.

About Juno and the Paycock

1922, Dublin. The Irish Civil War is tearing the nation apart and in a tiny tenement flat Juno Boyle is trying to make ends meet and keep her family together. Juno has long used sharp wit as a shield and survival tool, and for good reason: her husband, “Captain” Jack Boyle, sets sail for the pub every night. Juno’s luck suddenly seems on the up when news of a great inheritance comes knocking… but will it spell the end of her family’s troubles?

Both deeply poignant and sharply funny, Juno and the Paycock is a big-hearted tale of a mother’s stubborn resilience in the face of life’s hardest moments. Hailed an Irish masterpiece, it is one of playwright Seán O’Casey's best-known works, alongside The Plough and the Stars.

J. Smith-Cameron and Mark Rylance in Juno and the Paycock

Emmy Award nominee J. Smith-Cameron stars as put-upon Juno Boyle, a role she last played in New York ten years ago. At the time, New York Times theatre critic Charles Isherwood called it, “one of the finest performances of her distinguished career on the stage.”

Smith-Cameron has a long and illustrious stage career, but has in recent years become known as Logan Roy’s right-hand woman Gerri Kellman in Succession.

Mark Rylance co-stars as Jack Boyle. He is a hugely popular West End actor, with credits including Jerusalem - for which he won an Olivier Award - and Farinelli and the King. On screen, he is an Oscar winner for his performance as Rudolf Abel in Bridge of Spies.
