The Dead, 1904
James Joyceâ€™s novella, "The Dead," describes a holiday gathering on January 6, 1904, the Feast of the Epiphany, in the Dublin home of two elderly sisters, Kate and Julia Morkan, and their niece, Mary Jane. At the party are students, friends, a celebrated tenor, a lost alcoholic, and the couple, Gabriel and Gretta Conroy. Over the course of an evening, there are conversations, music, dancing, and dining. There are speeches and disagreements - polite and impolite - and when it is all over Gabriel learns something about his wife that changes his sense of who she is and who they are to each other, of what it actually means to be alive, and to be dead.
This exquisite recreation of James Joyce's haunting story was the most sought-after theatrical event of New York's 2016 and 2017 holiday seasons. We relish the opportunity to welcome you again, or for the first time.
