James Joyce's Dubliners, a work of embryonic modernism first published in 1914, pushed the short story collection into new territory. Although each story functions perfectly in isolation, we will read several selections, allowing the themes, concerns and meanings overlap and reverberate for a truly unique experience.
All the stories in this collection take place within the streets of Dublin and are ordered so that the book explores life, as Joyce explained, in "four of its aspects: childhood, adolescence, maturity and public life."
With these touchstones as a launching pad, the full range of human experience will be explored: love, marriage, employment, politics, religion and death.
SUNDAY BRUNCH READINGS
A SERIES OF LIVE, STAGED READINGS, WITH MUSIC
To enjoy the complete experience of our Summer Repertory Season, join us for the Sunday Brunch Reading series, an exploration of the ideas, themes, period of a play or a playwright's work. Each of the readings is tailored to create an immersive environment that reflects the world of the matinée performance it precedes.
Enjoy a light picnic lunch (for sale at our concession), and thoughtful, lively entertainment in the grounds adjacent The Jericho Arts Centre, prior to our Sunday matinees.
PLEASE NOTE: Admission to Dubliners is by donation or is included - as are all other brunches - when you purchase a FESTIVAL PASS.
PLEASE NOTE: In the event of rain, this event will move indoors.
