Join award-winning actors, singers and musicians on an odyssey through James Joyce’s masterpiece, "Ulysses", at the 18th annual Rattlin’ of the Joists Bloomsday celebration.
On June 16, 1904, writer James Joyce met his future wife, Nora Barnacle and immortalized the date in his monumental epic, "Ulysses". Modern Joyce aficionados have denoted June 16 "Bloomsday"; a day set aside throughout the world to honor his controversial and thought-provoking works.
Frank Delaney was a writer, broadcaster, best-selling novelist, critic, raconteur and Joyce scholar. He was in the middle of a 25-year commitment to reread and deconstruct James Joyce's "Ulysses" line-by-line in a weekly podcast called "Re: Joyce" when he died in last winter. This year's program honors Delaney's legacy.
Featuring Brad Armacost, Evan Armacost, Kevin Cassidy, Brigid Duffy, Brendan Gregg, Cynthia Judge, Josephine Craven, Tenor Mark Piekarz and Harpist Aislinn Gagliardi. With special guest Brian O'Brien, Consul General of Ireland.
The Rattlin’ of the Joists Bloomsday Celebration is Friday, June 16 at 7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased by calling 773-282-7035, ext 10 or visiting www.irish-american.org and are $15 in advance through June 15 and $20 at the door.
