'Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.' The Dead
In Dubliners, James Joyce offers an astonishing and enduring portrayal of the city – a mirror, in which the people of Dublin, as Joyce once wrote, could take 'one good look at themselves.' Nearly a hundred years since its publication, Dublin Theatre Festival and Ireland’s acclaimed ensemble company The Corn Exchange presents an extraordinary opportunity to experience a collection of Joyce's stories staged on a large scale for the first time in the city of their origin. Following the award-winning productions Dublin By Lamplight, Freefall and Man of Valour, The Corn Exchange deftly captures the rich humour, the small cruelties and the celebrated epiphanies of Joyce’s iconic stories in the company’s ground-breaking transformational style. Dublin Theatre Festival is proud to present this world première of The Corn Exchange’s adaptation of Dubliners, which promises to be a provocative and startlingly relevant witness to a masterpiece.
