James Joyce once said that if Dublin one day disappeared from the earth, it could be reconstructed out of Ulysses. There is no better evidence for this than “the Wandering Rocks” episode, which features Dublin and almost all of the major and minor characters of Ulysses as they crisscross the city.

A dramatic reading features veteran actors Síle Bermingham, James Gallo, James Lancaster, John Lee, Johnny O’Callaghan, and Sonya Macari.

The celebration continues in the courtyard with Guinness and live music by Rattle the Knee.

Organized by Stanley Breitbard. Directed by Darcie Crager.
