Bloomsday — Seattle 2022

The Wild Geese Players of Seattle will present a staged reading of Episode 13, “Nausicaa”, adapted from the 1922 edition of James Joyce’s Ulysses. Our annual reading will be presented in-person (most likely) at location TBD on date TBD (either the weekend of June 11th or June 18th).

Bloomsday (Bloom’s day, named for Ulysses’ main character, Leopold Bloom) refers to the 24-hour period on June 16, 1904 in which Ulysses is set. Joyce’s ground-breaking novel follows the wanderings of Bloom, a Jewish everyman, and Stephen Dedalus, a young writer and Joyce’s alter ego, as they wander the streets of Dublin.

Join us for Episode 13, Nausicaa, where it is 8pm on Sandymount Beach, and Leopold Bloom is exchanging meaningful glances with Gerty MacDowell.

Script

Ulysses at 100

On 2 February 1882, in the Dublin suburb of Rathgar, a son was given unto John and May Joyce. James Joyce celebrated his 40th birthday in Paris on 2 February 1922 by receiving the first printed copy of his novel Ulysses.

There are many events, books, and articles marking the centenary of the publication of Ulysses.

The Wild Geese Players of Seattle are sitting out this week’s events, but we’ll be back in June for a Bloomsday reading.
