Strolling through Ulysses 

Studio Theatre, dlr LexIcon Tuesday 2 February, 7.00pm. Tickets €10

Suitable for over 16s only.

Written and performed by Robert Gogan, Strolling Through Ulysses guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner, – without compromising the integrity of the great book. Joyce, speaking about Ulysses once famously declared, ‘there is not one serious line in it.’ Strolling Through Ulysses, certainly proves that. Bawdy, irreverent and great fun!
