Bloomsday by Steven Dietz
In partnership with the Irish Real Life Festival
Join us for an Irish time-travel love story that urges us to make the most of the present - before it is past. Robert travels to Dublin hoping to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour 35 years ago. As time bends and twists, they encounter their younger selves, and relive the events that brought them so briefly together.
