Ulysses for Children? Yes. Yes, Ulysses for Children.

An adaptation of James Joyce’s epic story of one day in one city. Ulysses is brought to life in this inventive new show, bringing Ireland’s most notorious book to young audiences, and to all those who haven’t read it yet.

Combining live performance, intricate paper design, an original score and Joyce’s odyssey, this is theatre that will excite both young and old.

This tour is supported by Culture Ireland

Originally commissioned by and produced as part of Ulysses 2.2, a collaborative project between ANU, Landmark Productions and Museum of Literature Ireland.

'Ulysses for children: has the world gone mad? However unlikely it sounds – making a simple staged version of probably the most celebrated modernist novel, complex and famously difficult to read – Branar, the inventive Galway-based theatre company for children, has gone and done it.....The whole is surprisingly simple for such a complicated novel, and a great introduction to its appeal. Gregg, the performer. is charming, funny, knowing and good crack'
