Visit the Joyce Tower Museum during Costival and experience the first episode of Ulysses reenacted in the Tower and by the sea.
In this acclaimed solo performance, Paul O’Hanrahan provides an opportunity to see the opening episode of Joyce’s Ulysses re-enacted on location within the Joyce Tower and by the sea in Sandycove. Like a short three-act play, the action moves from roof-top to living room to shore with Joyce deftly using details of the setting to underscore the changes in status between his characters.
