James Joyce Reading Group!

We are starting the Reading Group this month.........   and starting with the Short story "The Dead" from Dubliners... email or phone for further info. The aim and ethos is a relaxed non-expert group......  venue may be the Church of Ireland Building, Main Street, Bruff. Conversation and introduction may include showing of part of the John Heuston film. More details next week. 

The Dead, the celebrated short story from James Joyce’s Dubliners, is a recognised masterpiece.

This Christmas, the Abbey Theatre presents this classic in a new dramatisation by one of Ireland’s most important playwrights, Frank McGuinness.
The year is 1904. It is a snowy winter’s night in the city of Dublin. Gretta and Gabriel Conroy are among the guests at the Morkan Sisters’ annual dinner on the Feast of the Epiphany and the last day of Christmas. An evening of laughter, music and dance ends in an epiphany for Gabriel.
Joe Dowling, former Director of the Abbey Theatre, returns to direct a stellar cast of Irish actors in the must see theatre event of the year.

JOYCE HOUSE, the fictional Morkan sisters' home. 15 Usher's Island, Dublin.
