Dead to the World

Act One Radio Drama – June 16, 2004

KPFA presents a centenary celebration of "Bloomsday" with a marathon reading of James Joyce’s Ulysses beginning at 8 pm, and
through the night to dawn, closing with the infamous Molly Bloom soliloquy.
100 actors will gather on New York’s Broadway to read selections from the
novel that plotted the course of modern literature, and wound up in the
courts in the fight about indecency versus free speech and freedom of the
press. Readers include Frank and Malachy McCourt and the incomparable
Fionnula Flanagan as Molly Bloom. Hosted by Susan Stone of KPFA’s Drama and Literature Department.
