Happy Bloomsday!

Wyckham Avery, star of Rorschach Theatre's production of DEAD CITY, is seen celebrating BLOOMSDAY.

This annual celebration of Irish writer James Joyce and the re-enactment of the events in his novel Ulysses. 16 June was the date of Joyce's first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle, when they walked to the Dublin village of Ringsend.

DEAD CITY is a dark, hip and ultra-theatrical reimagining of James Joyce's Ulysses reverses the genders of the main characters and updates the landscape to a mind-bending Manhattan. Sheila Callaghan's distinctive style makes the mundane electric and turns conversation into poetry.

The run begins with three Pay-What-You-Can Previews on July 16, 17 and 18, all at 8:30 PM.
