Bloomsday 2024

Renowned Irish theatre maker and interpreter of James Joyce, Declan Gorman will perform his internationally acclaimed solo show The Dubliners Dilemma.

An extremely fun entertaining one man show… ingeniously intercutting Joyce and his publisher’s letters with extracts from the collection. It will make you want to read Dubliners again!”

It begins in London shortly before WW1, in the basement workroom of publisher Grant Richards, who had previously rejected ‘Dubliners’ out of worry it might breach strict obscenity laws.

Now he re-reads the manuscript and recalls his uncomfortable correspondence with the truculent young genius. Should he reconsider and publish now? In all their magical glory, the stories of Dublin come to vivid life around him.

“Gorman holds the audience enraptured… a truly mesmerising performance” – Metro Herald

“Comic… Ingenious” – Mail on Sunday.

“A compelling performer… animated and intelligent!
