Joxer Daly Esq.
Performed by Phelim Drew.
Sean O’Casey’s playful scrounger from the classic, Juno and The Paycock, takes centre stage in this intriguing new play from the pen of Eddie Naughton. With events that were to alter the course of Irish history as a backdrop, Joxer Daly Esq. charts an everyman journey from a respectable member of The Foresters Association to a vagabond scraping by with only his wit to use as collateral.
Joxer Daly is an ordinary person trying to navigate the difficult waters of what was Dublin in the period leading up to the birth of a Republic. Brilliantly performed by Phelim Drew, Joxer’s love of language, humour, literature and song, together with a drinkers purple recollection, makes this a performance like no other. Entertaining and funny; Joxer Daly Esq. is a thought-provoking gander at one of Irish Literatures most loveable chancers!
Phelim started acting in his teens with the late Gladys Sheehan’s profit share company, before attending the first full time acting course at The Gaiety School of Acting under the direction of Joe Dowling.
