overview
Part of Literature

Symphony Space's 36th annual literary rite of spring celebrating life, love, and language in James Joyce's lavish, languid, and lively prose.

For over a decade, Joyce's great work was famously banned throughout the United States. This year's Bloomsday will feature a Whirlwind Tour of Ulysses with, authors, actors and devoted Joyceans performing readings from the offensive, subversive, obscene, political, sexual and heretical elements of Joyce's groundbreaking and sensational novel. The evening will also bring to life the court battles banning Ulysses and the impassioned efforts of those to praise, condemn, save or destroy Joyce's contentious book. Directed by Lisa Flanagan.

Readers include Sam Underwood, Valorie Curry, Malachy McCourt, and more! Cast is subject to change.

 

Presented in collaboration with Irish Arts Center.
