Events at the Tavern: Aris presents A Staged Reading of “Ulysses” (June 6 & 7)

(Lobby opens at 5:45pm, seating and dinner service starts at 6:15pm)

Back by popular demand!!

In celebration of Bloomsday, Aris is re-mounting their staged reading of “Ulysses”, adapted by acclaimed playwright and novelist Dermot Bolger from the novel by James Joyce.


THAT Ulysses!

But don’t be intimidated - if you have never managed to get past the first page of this literary behemoth, Bolger’s adaptation was written especially for YOU!  His aim was to produce a play “that people who’ve never read a word of Joyce will enjoy as a piece of theatre” and that serves “as a passport into the book.” The play was acclaimed by both critics and theatregoers in Scotland when it was first performed at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow in 2012 and later this year it will be produced at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

Please come and share a couple of hours in the company of Leopold and Molly Bloom, Stephen and Simon Dedalus, Blazes Boylan, and over 80 other dubious denizens of 1904 Dublin, all portrayed by just eight actors.

The cast features Jeffrey Zwartjes as Leopold Bloom, along with Kara Cantrell, Josh Brooks, Reay Kaplan, Matt Lewis, Vinnie Mascola, Gina Rickicki and Pat Young and is directed by Clint Thornton.

Be warned – this production contains adult material and is NOT suitable for children or puritans!!
