Four and a half years on, having toured from Mayo to Moscow to Oslo, 'The Dubliners Dilemma' returns for a special once-off Christmas showing to the studio theatre where it was first performed. Declan Gorman's acclaimed one-man show captures publisher Grant Richards as he re-reads James Joyce's 'Dubliners' manuscript 8 years after rejecting it, and wondering if it might be safe to publish it now in 1914. Joyce's brilliant evocations of a Dublin of wide-eyed children, rascals, perverts, social climbers, drinkers and gigolos leap to vivid life. This informal evening with the writer-performer will also include a short, animated reading from the famous Christmas Dinner scene in Joyce's 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man'.
