Bloomsday: Dermot Bolger & Ferdia MacAnna
Celebrate Bloomsday and step into the world of Ulysses at the Abbey Theatre this Saturday.
There are countless ways to celebrate Bloomsday this weekend in Dublin, why not include this fascinating discussion as part of the #AbbeyTalks series in your day’s activities?
Take your seat facing Molly Bloom’s bed and the bar of the Ormond Hotel for lively conversation and insight with writers Dermot Bolger and Ferdia MacAnna.
Up for discussion is the influence of James Joyce, the inspiration of Dublin city, and the challenges of adapting Ulysses for the stage – from Bolger’s critically-acclaimed production currently back for another run, to the famous and controversial stagings of Ulysses in Nighttown at the Abbey, directed by Ferdia’s father, the late Tomás MacAnna
