Ingenious, exhilarating fun...every stroke of theatrical boldness is delivered with absolute joy  ★★★★ The Irish Times

From Rough Magic comes the world premiere of Arthur Riordan’s vibrant stage adaptation of the seminal novel by James Joyce, brought to life by a dynamic, new, creative ensemble of actors and designers under Ronan Phelan’s direction.

The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression will be brought to life in a thrilling theatrical odyssey.
Written during the political and artistic explosion of the early twentieth century, this is Joyce’s manifesto; the dazzling debut of Ireland’s epic reinventor and architect of the English language.
