Declan Gorman will perform his internationally acclaimed solo show The Dubliners Dilemma

The Dubliners Dilemma
Thursday, 13 June  2024
Time 7:00 – 11:00 pm  Tickets $20

Renowned Irish theatre maker and interpreter of James Joyce, Declan Gorman will perform his internationally acclaimed solo show The Dubliners Dilemma

An extremely fun entertaining one man show… ingeniously intercutting Joyce and his publisher’s letters with extracts from the collection. It will make you want to read Dubliners again!”

It begins in London shortly before WW1, in the basement workroom of publisher Grant Richards, who had previously rejected ‘Dubliners’ out of worry it might breach strict obscenity laws.
Now he re-reads the maunscript and recalls his uncomfortable correspondence with the truculent young genius. Should he reconsider and publish now? In all their magical glory, the stories of Dublin come to vivid life around him.

“Comic… Ingenious”Mail on Sunday.

“A compelling performer… animated and intelligen

Written and performed by Declan Gorman. Directed by Gerard Lee.

“Gorman holds the audience enraptured throughout with a truly mesmerising performance. This original adaptation is by no means exclusively for die-hard Joyce fans, making a brilliant introduction for newcomers!” Metro Herald, Dublin

“Gorman is a compelling performer, at his best when undertaking childhood roles and in his element with Joyce’s obsequious characters … an animated and intelligent performance.” Irish Theatre Magazine
