Bewley's Café Theatre in association with Sí Productions is proud to present this provocative new adaptation of the final soliloquy in Joyce's Ulysses.

Molly Bloom lies awake, plagued by insomnia, wind and her husband’s snoring, and bares her soul as she questions her life choices. 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.

Molly’s observations on relationships strike a chord with contemporary audiences and her unashamed sexuality is startlingly modern. In an age of body shaming, it is refreshing to encounter a woman, who is unashamed of her body and physicality.

"an absorbing staging... vivid, palpable, irresistible..."(Galway Advertiser
"a beautiful piece of performance… a must see" (Reviews Hub)

Performed by IFTA nominated actress Tara Breathnach (A Nightingale Falling, Jack Taylor) and directed by Petal Pilley (Blue Teapot Theatre Company, Footsbarn)
