Rattlin’ of the Joists has been celebrating Bloomsday, named for James Joyce’s central character in Ulysses, Leopold Bloom for 2 decades with readings, music and song. We have looked at the man, his life and his works. We have gone on culinary journeys and erotic journeys. We have covered the dirty bits and the blasphemous bits. We have even, on occasion, followed Alice down the rabbit hole of meanings and references behind the sometimes incomprehensible text.

The IAHC production has traveled to Celtic Fest, the Newberry Library, The WIP Theatre and Irish Fest Milwaukee with stage adaptations of excerpts,  a music of Joyce concert,  a bus tour around Chicago following its protagonists across Dublin acting out vignettes at different locations and participating in a global reading of Ulysses, in its entirety, in one day.

Join our actors, singers and musicians on an odyssey through our own ‘Best of Joyce’ from 20 years of celebrating Bloomsday.

Featuring: Director and performer Josephine Craven, Brad Armacost, Cynthia Judge, Kevin Cassidy, Brigid Duffy, Brendan Gregg, Tenor Mark Piekarz and Harpist Aislinn Gagliardi
