The Bloomsday Story
Venue: St. Werburgh's Church, Werburgh Street, Dublin 2
The Bloomsday Story by Robert Gogan will be held in St. Werburgh's Church, Werburgh St. on Bloomsday - 16 June 2013, at 3pm. The Temple Bar Company is proud to present the city of Dublin premier of 'The Bloomsday Story' by Robert Gogan - a light-hearted journey through James Joyce's 'Ulysses', its characters and music. No English Degree needed – this is Ulysses for all – Joyce once said 'There is not one serious line in it' and The Bloomsday Story proves that! The first time in this format, this is a bluffer's guide to Ulysses. The cast, Anne Tyrrell, Paul Kennedy and Robert Gogan take you on a whistlestop tour through one of the greatest novels of all time. After the performance you'll feel like you've read and digested the entire book; all 732 pages, nearly 270,000 words and over 200 characters – performed in just under 100 minutes. Sit back, relax and enjoy this highly entertaining presentation with liberal quotations from Ulysses sprinkled throughout with marvellous Joycean music.
