By James Joyce
Adapted for the stage by Arthur Riordan
Rough Magic Arthur Riordan’s vibrant stage adaptation of James Joyce’s seminal novel, brought to life by a dynamic new creative ensemble of actors and designers under Ronan Phelan’s direction.
The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression will be brought to life in a thrilling theatrical odyssey. Written during the political and artistic explosion of the early twentieth century, this is Joyce’s manifesto; the dazzling debut of Ireland’s epic re-inventor and architect of the English language.
