Four Characters from Ulysses: A Centenary Celebration

On February 2nd, the day after St Brigid’s Day and the ancient Celtic festival of Imbolc, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s celebrated ground-breaking novel Ulysses on February 2nd 1922 in Paris. Set in Dublin on a single day, June 16th, 1904, the book features many residents of that city, some based on real historical characters. However, three fictional characters – the young man Stephen Dedalus, the older Leopold Bloom, and his wife Molly Bloom – dominate the book, as does the ever-present geography, language and character of the City of Dublin. With brief performed excerpts from the book, The Here Comes Everybody Players will bring to life each of these characters and their connections with one another.

The programme will be introduced by Joyce Scholar, Katherine O’Callaghan of University of Massachusetts Amherst, and will be punctuated with live music.

We hope you will be able to join The Here Comes Everybody Players and the Consulate General of Ireland, Boston for this special performance.
