Midday Mumming Madness: Bloomsday with the Fingal Mummers

Join us at the James Joyce Center on Bloomsday, Sunday June 16th at 12pm for some ‘midday mumming madness’ as the extraordinary talent of the Fingal Mummers will explore mummery in Ulysses and other works of James Joyce in their production of Everyman His Own Wife.

Throughout Ulysses, Buck Mulligan calls Stephen “A lovely mummer!”; “Kinch, the loveliest mummer of them all!”; “O, you peerless mummer!” Mulligan declares that “I have conceived a play for the mummers” and launches into the title page of a lewd skit. The James Joyce Centre will be truly transformed as we watch the Fingal Mummers celebrate Bloomsday with comedy, music, mischief and song. Come witness this truly unique Irish tradition during this truly unique Irish festival.

The event is free. No booking required.
