a staging of


framed in a personal memoir

On January 6th 1982, a young Irish emigrant borrows an English language book from a library in Munich.  He reads it over one evening. The course of his life is changed…. Forty years later, he walks onto a stage to recreate the magic of that night and perform one of the greatest short stories ever written in the English language.

Monaghan writer and actor Declan Gorman mixes memoir and the magic of live theatre to bring to life James Joyce’s much-loved January classic, “The Dead” in this warm and moving performance.
