|Love's Bitter Mystery: The Year that Made James Joyce|
Love's Bitter Mystery, written by Steve Carey and directed by Jennifer Sarah Dean (Moulin Rouge) is brought to you, belatedly in 2021, by Bloomsday in Melbourne. A biographical play about a critical year in the life of James Joyce, it's a new, immersive theatrical experience, set in Paris and Dublin in 1903-4. It addresses this question: how does a young nobody become the most lionized author of the twentieth century?
Let us take you through the stately rooms of the spookily atmospheric Victorian mansion Villa Alba, a spectacular set for this play, to witness love, death, sex and violence… and the two powerful women who made James Joyce.
