ABOUT

BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE in association with THE BLOOMSDAY FESTIVAL is proud to present...

GRACE by James Joyce

James Joyce’s Grace is a tale of booze, bombast and religious confusion that brilliantly satirises the role of the Catholic Church in early twentieth century Irish life.

When struggling salesman, Tom Kernan, is found drunk and injured in a pub toilet and brought home in disgrace to his long suffering wife, his friends hatch a plot to save him from his errant ways.

This new production of the classic Dubliners story, features the actor and comedian, Terry O’Neill, who brings to life Joyce’s rare collection of characters and takes you on a hilarious journey from purgatory to paradise that is perfect for the Festive Season.

 

Dubliners, first published in 1914, is one of the great short story collections in the English language. By exploring the lives of his fellow Dublin citizens with unflinching realism, Joyce revealed truths both blasphemous and transcendent.

 

‘O’Neill… does a terrific job of creating an excellent range of at least five different Dublin voices’ Irish Independent

 

‘Sandra Butler’s simple design is delightfully and imaginatively impressive’ Sunday Independent

 

‘O’Neill brings considerable energy and skill as the narrator’ Nomoreworkhorse

 

'Dublin past is thus vividly conjured’ Irish Independent
