The Abbey Theatre: Ulysses
2nd October-28th October
The Abbey Theatre presents Dermot Bolger’s brilliantly edited, vibrant version of Joyce’s classic in a vivaciously re-imagined auditorium.
‘my ideal audience is people who always wanted to read the book but felt daunted. They may be surprised to find that it remains a book about themselves and people they know. They will not leave knowing everything about Joyce, no more than I’ll ever comprehend the fullness of his vision. But I hope they are sufficient engaged by the human drama; by Bloom’s subtle triumphs; Molly’s all too human contradictions and Stephen’s isolation on the eve of departure, to again start to read this superb chronicle of our capital city: one of the greatest and truest novels of all time.’ – Dermot Bolger
