This is one of Ireland's best in theatre that combines the high energy playfulness of Joxer and Boyle with the of the disturbing poverty and deprivation of tenement life that even I can recall seeing in Dublin growing up in the 50s.  Cusack was a little slow in getting off the ground in the openinbg scene and I had difficulty hearing her.  She came to life when Hinds' presence hit the stage.  Joxer and Boyle are one of the central pieces in the narrative and as always very enjoyable.  However, I found their performances a little too theatrical and circus-like in this production and the underlying despair of their lives did not come through sufficiently.  Excellent set that portrayed the faded elegance of the Georgian room in which they lived.
