Dubliners: A Quartet
An Audio Play by Arthur Yorinksinspired by the stories of James Joyce
Watch live webcast at 4:30pm ET:
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of James Joyce’s Dubliners, The Greene Space, in association with the Irish Arts Center, presents DUBLINERS: A QUARTET, a newly commissioned audio play written by award-winning playwright Arthur Yorinks and inspired by Joyce’s stories.
Conceived as an immersive theatrical experience, the performance will include an extended intermission featuring culinary delights and drinks from Ireland. The play is drawn from four Dubliners stories—”Araby,” “Eveline,” “Clay,” and “The Dead”—the first three representing the stages of life in Joyce’s work: childhood, adolescence, and maturity. “The Dead” completes the suite.
A single company of noted actors will perform all four parts of the play in one evening in this multi-faceted celebration of Joyce’s work and influence on modern literature in the early part of the 20th-century. Jim Simpson, Artistic Director of The Flea Theater in Tribeca, will co-direct with Yorinks. Edward Barnes, Producing Director of The Collegiate Chorale, will serve as musical director, arranging the traditional Irish music that will be performed live. Sarah Montague will serve as dramaturg.
