We bring you a special annual production produced last
month, Bloomsday—June 16th—is an annual celebration
among Joyce fans throughout the world, from Fort
Lauderdale to Melbourne. It is celebrated in at least
sixty countries worldwide, but nowhere so
imaginatively, of course, as in Dublin. There the
events of Leopold Bloom’s day are reenacted by anyone
who cares to participate, and his itinerary is
followed all across Dublin.

Bloomsday celebrations also feature readings of
Ulysses, James Joyce lookalike contests, various other
semi-literary activities, and a good excuse for
hoisting a few Guinnesses. In the eyes of many, it’s
easier and a lot more fun than trying to work your way
through Ulysses.
