James Joyce's The Dead

Theatre, Drama

Aidan Gillen resurrects James Joyce’s short story 'The Dead' in a candelit reading with piano accompaniment by Feargal Murray. The last story of 1914 collection 'Dubliners', Joyce's tale of a pedantic professor who experiences a personal epiphany at a Christmas party may not provide much festive fun. But it promises to be a beautiful if brutal evening during what is, for many, a bitter sweet season.
