“Yes” Molly’s Soliloquy


We’re kicking off Bloomsday with a unique performance, commissioned specially by the Belfast Book Festival and adapted for the stage by Conor Maguire and performance by Louise Parker, recent credits include Come Home and Krypton.

This brunch-time event “Yes” Molly’s Soliloquy is a theatrical adaptation based on Chapter 18 of James Joyce’s  Ulysses.

Molly Bloom lies in bed, her husband Leopold having returned home and fallen asleep beside her and so begins one of Joyce’s most breathless, raunchy and explosive pieces of writing. Molly reminisces on memories of past affairs, her current liaison with Blazes Boylan, her suspicions regarding Leopold Bloom’s clandestine sexual encounters, and her early days with Bloom.

We are delighted to partner with Bullitt Hotel to bring this piece of special theatre to the festival. A brunch of filled Brioche rolls, teas and coffees, and yes, even a Bloomsday cocktails will be served.

Space is limited, so don’t miss your chance to witness this unique piece of theatre.

There will be further performances of this piece at The Crescent on 17 and 18 June. Tickets can be booked at CrescentArts.org
