Ulysses for Children?
Yes, Ulysses for Children.
James Joyce’s epic story of one day in one city is brought to life in this inventive new show, bringing Ireland’s most notorious book to audiences aged 8 and upwards, and to all those who haven’t got around to reading it yet. Presented as part of Ulysses 2.2, and combining live performance, intricate paper design, an original score and Joyce’s odyssey, this is theatre that will excite young and old.

Ulysses 2.2 is a year-long, nationwide programme of thrilling new artistic experiments, created by a rich and diverse gathering of established and emerging Irish artists, presented in a range of live performances, digital commissions and installations.
