Bloomsday in Melbourne proudly presented the premiere of a feature-length film, set in Paris and Dublin in 1903-4.
How does a young nobody become the most lionized author of the twentieth century?
Filmed in the stately setting of the spookily atmospheric Victorian mansion Villa Alba, our brand new play features love, death, sex and violence…and the two powerful women who made James Joyce.

Yes I Will Yes!
A brand new play: Molly Bloom, diva and siren, promenades in Melbourne
The MC Showroom, Prahran
Directed by Carl Whiteside with Musical Direction by Emma Austin
Molly Bloom – earthy, vulgar, feisty – is reinvented for the centenary of James Joyce’s infamous banned classic. Forced to choose between a rich adulterer with a vicious glint in his eye and an all-too-familiar husband in Leopold Bloom, Molly reveals herself as never before, the celebrated toast of Gibraltar, Dublin and the world. Bloomsday presents the world premiere of a riotously funny and shockingly frank adaptation of the (in)famous final chapter of Ulysses
