In celebration of Bloomsday, Aris presents a staged reading of “Ulysses”, adapted by acclaimed playwright and novelist Dermot Bolger from the novel by James Joyce.


THAT Ulysses!

With a very special Bloomsday food and drink menu available at 6:15pm. Tasty!

But don’t be intimidated - if you have never managed to get past the first page of this literary behemoth, Bolger’s adaptation was written especially for YOU! His aim was to produce a play “that people who’ve never read a word of Joyce will enjoy as a piece of theatre” and that serves “as a passport into the book.” The play was acclaimed by both critics and theatregoers in Scotland when it was first produced at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow in 2012.

Please come and share a couple of hours in the company of Leopold and Molly Bloom, Stephen and Simon Dedalus, Blazes Boylan, and over 80 other dubious denizens of 1904 Dublin, all portrayed by just eight actors.

The cast features Kyle Brumley, Josh Brook, Kara Cantrell, Bryan Davis, Sophie Edwards, Reay Kaplan, Vinny Mascola, and Jeffrey Schwartjes as Leopold Bloom, and is directed by Clint Thornton.

BE WARNED! This production contains adult material and is NOT suitable for children or puritans!!

The reading will be staged for two performances only, Tuesday June 14 and Wednesday June 15, 2016 at the New American Shakespeare Tavern, 499 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30308.

Katie Roche by Teresa Deevy
Staged Reading Series
We are proud to present this drama by an important, and almost forgotten, Irish playwright. Teresa Deevy’s plays were extremely popular at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin in the 1930’s, and this story about a vivacious, seductive woman without a family was her greatest success. An Atlanta premiere.

The Weir by Conor McPherson

As the days get colder and the nights get darker, what could be better than a good ghost story? Join us for an evening in a lonely pub, where the drink flows and the talk turns to tales of terror.

And as always, you can also catch us at the Decatur Book Festival on Labor Day weekend, at IrishFest in November, and in Atlanta’s Celtic Christmas in December.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
