The Corn Exchange and Smock Alley Theatre present: Dubliners by James Joyce. Adapted by Annie Ryan & Michael West
"Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age." - The Dead
The Corn Exchange and Smock Alley Theatre present Dubliners by James Joyce, an extraordinary opportunity to experience Joyce’s masterful collection as part of the Bloomsday Festival 2022.
Dubliners 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”. The stories, sharply ironic, beautiful, despairing and mysterious cohere into what Joyce called "a chapter of the moral history of my country".
Directed by Irish Times award winning director Annie Ryan this new contemporary production, reconfigured from the hugely successful 2012 production for Dublin Theatre Festival, deftly captures the rich humour, the small cruelties and the celebrated epiphanies of Joyce’s iconic stories.
