Description

Have you ever read a book that included a toilet visitation, a bar room brawl, an act of seduction, naughty shenanigans on a beach, lewd thoughts, adultery, a drunken orgy, and a detailed description of urinating in a back garden? And all of this happening in just one day! If you haven’t, then you haven’t read James Joyce’s Ulysses!

 

Mon 01 - Wed 03 July at 7pm - 8.30pm

 

Part of Clonmel Junction Arts Festival

 

Strolling Through Ulysses! tells the fun-filled story of Bloomsday - June 16th 1904 - the iconic day around which James Joyce’s Ulysses is based.

 

Strolling Through Ulysses! guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner, with extracts from the novel which best illustrate the various aspects of Joyce’s writing - the comical, the descriptive and the complex – without compromising the integrity of the great book.

 

Joyce, speaking about Ulysses, once famously declared, ‘there is not one serious line in it.’ Strolling Through Ulysses! certainly proves that!

 

Bawdy, irreverent and great fun!
