#Ulysses at the Abbey Theatre, #Dublin

I saw “Ulysses” at the Abbey Theatre last night.  I was seated on the stage, in and amongst the actors and action.  


Leopold was more than gently tragic, and yet defiantly principled in everything he did; Stephen, a man torn between emotion and truth, slowly realising perhaps that the two were the same; and magnificent Molly: the essence – and very uncommon sense – of life, intelligence and love itself.

I fell in love myself during the evening with everything that Molly represents.  The Irish couple sitting next to me even went so far as to suggest I joined her in her bed.  I gladly concurred, though sadly did not have the opportunity.

A wonderful wonderful song to humanity.  A touching of the dirty dirty.  A glancing, and dancing, and singing, and prancing, of the very best that Dublin – and Stephen’s fiercely owned Ireland – will ever have to offer.
