DUBLINERS: A QUARTET
We’re thrilled to be partnering with The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR June 28th and 29th for a special live radio play based upon James Joyce’s much-loved book of short stories Dubliners. The newly commissioned audio play written by award-winning playwright Arthur Yorinks is inspired by four Dubliners’ stories –“Araby,” “Eveline,” “Clay,” and “The Dead.” A company of more than a dozen noted actors will perform all four parts of the play alongside a dozen musicians performing new arrangements of traditional Irish music. The immersive theatrical experience of Joyce’s work will be live-streamed on the web and edited for broadcast and podcasts.
