Molly Bloom is all woman and, we learn in highly explicit detail, has spent all afternoon romping with that rampant cad, Blazes Boylan. But there’s even more to her than meets the eye (though that’s plenty). She’s provocative, emphatically narcissistic in relation to her body, driven in pursuing her sexual goals, and contradictory. Now she must choose. Will she opt for the rich adulterer with a rose between his teeth, a vicious slapper of women’s backsides? Or the comfortable, all-too-familiar husband of 16 years? Or just possibly some other future altogether?
Bloomsday director Carl Whiteside comments: ‘I’m excited to tackle this adaptation where Molly not only reflects on her choice between her husband and her lover, but also realises a future version of herself as the once-again diva of every man’s dreams. Our exceptional cast will bring you a musical extravaganza inspired by Joyce’s love of silent film, opera and the roaring 20s.’ Carl has assembled a stellar cast of Mollies and we are confident they will seduce and enchant you.
As is traditional, there is a Seminar to tie in with the themes explored in the stage show. The speakers are Professor Peter Kuch and Assoc. Professor Frances Devlin-Glass. And after that, dinner at Ines Wine Bar, a short walk away. Seating is limited at this venue, so don’t delay in booking.
June 15 – 25
