LOVE'S BITTER MYSTERY
THE YEAR THAT MADE JAMES JOYCE
Written by Steve Carey and directed by Jennifer Sarah Dean
Tuesday 15th - Sunday 26th September 2021: 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.
May not be suitable for young children.

WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH
BLOOMSDAY IN MELBOURNE
IN SEPTEMBER 2021
We have SOLD OUT of our 3-Event Package for Bloomsday (that's the play plus seminar plus dinner).
But if you're quick, we do still have tickets for Wednesday 15th's seminar plus dinner – and you can catch the play at any time between Tuesday 14th and Sunday 26th September. Or you can just come along for the seminar and skip dinner; or vice versa.
Join us for the SEMINAR at 4pm, Joyce and the Women. Speakers are Love's Bitter Mystery playwright Steve Carey; and Bloomsday's Creative Director and Joycean scholar Frances Devlin-Glass.
And then segue on to the DINNER at 6pm, with Joyce-themed entertainment.
