Set in Dublin at the turn of the last century, James Joyce’s epiphanic masterpiece is largely autobiographical. His observation of the real lives of ordinary Dubliners signals the beginning of a life-long task of sketching the universal human condition. Joyce also lays claim to the freedom of the artist from the trappings of religion and nationality and sets out to “forge the uncreated conscience of his race”.
“The New Theatre's production is Joycian style incarnate… The humour of Joyce is never lost within the seriousness of so much of its content.” (Entertainment.ie)
