This play is one of two centrepieces of the 29th Bloomsday in Melbourne festival which in 2022 celebrates 100 years of publication of ‘Ulysses’. The play is a free adaptation of the much-loved Molly Bloom episode of James Joyce’s literary masterpiece, ‘Ulysses’. It’s funny, vulgar and outrageous. Based on the famous stream of consciousness chapter of the seductive Molly Bloom, the play makes its world premiere at The MC Showroom in Prahran. It runs from 15-25 June 2022.
Molly is all woman and has spent the afternoon romping with a rampant cad, Blazes Boylan. But there’s even more to Molly than meets the eye. She’s provocative, emphatically narcissistic in relation to her body, driven in pursuing her sexual goals, and contradictory. Now she must choose. Will she opt for the rich adulterer with a rose between his teeth, who is also a vicious slapper of women’s backsides? Or the comfortable, all-too-familiar husband of 16 years? Or perhaps some other future altogether?
