ON-DEMAND VIDEO | Dubliners: A Quartet
An audio play by Arthur Yorinks
inspired by the stories of James Joyce
Monday, August 04, 2014
James Joyce’s collection of short stories, Dubliners, is now one of the best-loved works of literature in the English-speaking world. But when it was first published a hundred years ago, it was considered so scandalous it sold only a few hundred copies.
The Greene Space celebrated the centennial anniversary of the book's publication with a presentation of a newly commissioned audio play written by award-winning playwright Arthur Yorinks and performed by an ensemble of noted actors and singers. The four-part play is inspired by four of Joyce's Dubliners stories. The first three parts of the play each represents one of the stages of life in Joyce’s work: Araby – childhood; Eveline – adolescence; Clay – maturity; with The Dead completing the theatrical suite.
