By Tara Breathnach
She lies awake, plagued by insomnia, wind, and her husband’s snoring, and bares her soul as she questions her life choices.
Molly is a provocative new adaptation of Joyce’s final soliloquy in Ulysses. This vibrant presentation reveals the woman behind the oft-misrepresented caricature - earthy and witty, yet vulnerable and sensual. A caustic wit is matched with searing honesty in her night-time musings. Closely based on James Joyce’s wife Nora, who was from Galway City, Molly Bloom is here liberated from the weight of literature in a fresh and revealing portrayal.
Performed by IFTA nominated actress Tara Breathnach (A Nightingale Falling, Jack Taylor) and directed by Petal Pilley (Blue Teapot Theatre Company, Footsbarn)
