Regional Premiere Drama
By Steven Dietz
April 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.
Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour 35 years ago. Dancing backwards through time, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them—if only briefly—together. This charming, Irish time-travel-love-odyssey transports audiences into a world of history, humor, and heartache and is a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past.”
