LOVE'S BITTER MYSTERY
THE YEAR THAT MADE JAMES JOYCE
Written by Steve Carey and directed by Jennifer Sarah Dean
Tuesday 1st - Sunday 13th February 2022: Villa Alba, 44 Walmer St, Kew
Bloomsday in Melbourne proudly presents a new, immersive theatrical experience, set in Paris and Dublin in 1903-4. How does a young nobody become the most lionized author of the twentieth century?
Let us take you through the stately rooms of the spookily atmospheric Victorian mansion Villa Alba to witness love, death, sex and violence… and the two powerful women who made James Joyce.

And then segue on to the DINNER at 6pm, with Joyce-themed entertainment.
