About this event

A telling of “The Dead” by James Joyce – framed in a personal memoir, written & performed by Declan Gorman. January 1982, a young Irish emigrant walks into a German bar and reads a copy of “The Dead” over one evening. His life is changed forever!

Prior to its British premiere on Bloomsday, June 16th, at the Irish Cultural Centre in London, acclaimed writer and Joycean performer Declan Gorman will give three intimate performances of his most recent solo show, "Falling Through the Universe", in Dublin (at the beautiful James Joyce Centre: June 7th): at the Market House Gallery in his home town of Monaghan (June 8th): and at The Little Theatre in the popular seaside town of Skerries, in County Dublin.

“The Dead is brought elegantly to life… Declan Gorman’s charming autobiographical play dramatises clearly how Joyce’s writing has embedded itself deeply in Irish culture. Gorman’s subtle performance reminds us clearly what a masterwork this story is.” Irish Independent
