Regional Premiere Drama

Bloomsday

By Steven Dietz

feature bloomsdayApril 4-23, 2017

2016 Finalist for the Harold and Mimi Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award

Set against the backdrop of James Joyce’s groundbreaking modernist novel Ulysses, an American man searches for the Irish woman who first captured his heart 30 years earlier while leading a “Bloomsday” walking tour in Dublin. Told with humor, wit and heartache, this buoyant and moving new play bends time and space to explore a love affair that might have been. Bloomsday references June 16, 1904, the day in Joyce’s novel Ulysses when the central characters in the novel, Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus, peregrinate through Dublin and briefly encounter one another.
