The Abbey Theatre: Ulysses 10 – 16 June

2022 marks 100 years since the publication of one of the greatest modern novels, Ulysses by James Joyce.

Acclaimed actor Barry McGovern has celebrated this famous text for over 30 years, reading excerpts from the novel every Bloomsday.

Now, in this centenary year, he takes to the Peacock stage to read the complete book over seven consecutive days, ending on Bloomsday, Thursday 16th June.

Set entirely on one day, 16 June 1904, Ulysses follows Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus as they go about their daily business in Dublin.   

Delve into a single chapter or immerse yourself in the complete work of one of literature’s greatest masterpieces.
