The Other Bloomsday - Seattle 2006


James Joyce’s novel Ulysses takes place on June 16th, 1904. It follows the wanderings of Leopold Bloom, a Jewish everyman, and Stephen Dedalus, a young writer and Joyce’s alter ego, as they wander the streets of Dublin.

The centenary of Bloomsday, June 16th, 2004, was celebrated worldwide.

The Wild Geese Players of Seattle will present a staged reading of chapter 12, “Cyclops”, adapted from the 1922 edition of Ulysses. The reading will take place at F.X. McRory’s on Fri 16th June 2006 at 8pm. Map
