Exiles by James Joyce

Bloomsday in Melbourne

Event Date: 15 June 2023 to 25 June 2023
Author / Presenters: Bloomsday in Melbourne - performing James Joyce's only play, Exiles, at fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne

Bloomsday in Melbourne, www.bloomsdayinmelbourne.org.au, presents a rare opportunity to see the lost masterpiece, Exiles (1919). The only play by the Irish writer, James Joyce, Exiles explores questions key to his masterpiece Ulysses (1922): what is love? If love is constrained by conventional bonds of fidelity, is it love at all? This surprisingly modern take on polyamory and its dark side, jealousy, is a rare dramatic gem that must not be missed in its Victorian premiere. Recently remounted in the West End and Broadway, it was widely praised for its contemporary themes and exploration of love and sex. This will be performed at fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne from 15-25 June - https://fortyfivedownstairs.com/event/exiles/
