Cyclops Adapted by Peter Reid from James Joyce's Ulysses

Dates: June 5th - 24th, 7.30pm Tickets: €16 (€12.50 concession)



About the Show:
Set in Barney Kiernan's pub, where a one eyed nationalist "THE CITIZEN" violently defends the superiority of the Celts. Actively encouraged by his increasingly drunk and loquacious companions as they mix gossip, florid and ridiculous tales of Irish history. The unfortunate Bloom enters. Molly's liaison with Blazes Boylan sits heavy on his mind. The pub's patrons dislike Bloom and all are aware of Molly's infidelity. Bloom and The Citizen row about race, nationality while the others snigger about Bloom's inability to satisfy his wife's needs.

A play full of drunkenness, song, history, infidelity and the everlasting question of who belongs where. Using the chapter as a framework to hang the story Bloom's troublesome day, it's a tragi-comic slice of Dublin life that holds more than enough resonances for the Ireland of today.
