Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday is an illustrated journey through the north and south of inner city Dublin. Inspired by Ulysses, James Joyce, it traces part of the journey Leopold Bloom makes through the streets. Starting on the north side with the Oval public house on Abbey street to Lower O’Connell street to Bachelor’s walk crossing over to O’Connell street bridge and following on to south side locations Westmoreland street and finishing on College street. Applying the idea of the flâneur observing city life and acting as a witness to each scene drawn and photographed on of different perspectives. Working from these twelve illustrations were made which show the exterior urban spaces, streets and people of each place and interior view points from a cafe, bus window and various shops. The idea of this exhibition is to visually capture the energy and the ‘stream of life’ of contemporary Dublin.

Bloom’s odyssey is a pandemonium of live music, puppets, dancing, clowning, bowler hats and kazoos. It’s Ulysses as you’ve never imagined it before, a superbly theatrical homage to Joyce’s chronicle of Dublin life and the greatest novel of all time. Created by Abbey Theatre Director Graham McLaren, our production is absurd, brilliant and oodles of fun. 100 audience seats for this production are on the stage, they can be booked here. Mon – Sat 7.30pm, Matinees Sat 2pm

The Snapper offers a wickedly funny account of the ups and downs of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin of the late 1980s. It is salty and sweet and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to the Rotunda Hospital where Sharon’s baby ‘the snapper’ is born. Roddy Doyle’s second installment of the celebrated Barrytown Trilogy is a story that remains fresh, vivid, astute and relevant for today.

Michael hasn’t been home in almost twenty years. Having been kicked out of the seminary and exiled from his family home, he found himself in London, by accident rather than design. But now, the death of his mother sees him back in the small town where he grew up. The place that chewed him up and spat him out. Reunited with his two brothers, their partners and the local clergy, there are questions that want answering and old scores that need laying to rest. Where do you find home, when your family and faith have abandoned you? An Irish funeral brings out the best and worst in people, and a long night of truths lies ahead.
