Theatre - 'til 30th September
Dubliners A Mini Adventure - is a self-guided audio-walking tour on headphones that invites you to walk the streets and historic buildings in which Joyce set four of his classic stories, whilst you listen to his short stories in situ, as they are told and performed for you on headphones by a large ensemble cast led by the celebrated Joycean actor Barry Mc Govern.
These stories are A Little Cloud, Counterparts, The beginning of Grace and The Sisters. This Adventure also includes eleven extra features on Joycean Dublin, Joyce's characters and the Dubliners they were based on, and most interestingly how Joyce's used the city you are walking through and its fine architecture to create his great tales.
