“Ingenious, exhilarating fun…every stroke of theatrical boldness is delivered with absolute joy.” ★★★★ from The Irish Times https://bit.ly/2y2Hf6g
By James Joyce
Adapted for the stage by Arthur Riordan
Rough Magic presents Arthur Riordan’s vibrant stage adaptation of James Joyce’s seminal novel, brought to life by a dynamic new creative ensemble of actors and designers under Ronan Phelan’s direction.
The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression will come alive in a thrilling theatrical odyssey. Written during the political and artistic explosion of the early twentieth century, this is Joyce’s manifesto; the dazzling debut of Ireland’s epic re-inventor and architect of the English language.
Directed by Ronan Phelan
Martha Breen, Amy Conroy, Peter Corboy, Aoibhéann McCann, Karen McCartney, Paul Mescal, Conor O’Riordan and Kieran Roche.
Set and Costume Design – Katie Davenport
Lighting Design – Sarah Jane Shiels
Sound Design and Composition – Denis Clohessy
Rough Magic is supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council

All hail @ArtRiordan &@RoughMagicIRL ! #PortraitOfTheArtist is a giddy celebration and a sly subversion of Jem The Penman’s coming-of-age. With a soundtrack to swoon for & a peach of a cast. See it when it comes near you!
