‘The Dead’ is the greatest story ever written. It presents a complete world in a very few deft strokes. — Paul Muldoon
James Joyce’s masterpiece, ‘The Dead’, is set on the Feast of the Epiphany, the perfect occasion for disclosure, discovery and revelation. The Dead, 1904 is the text of Paul Muldoon’s and Jean Hanff Korelitz’s immersive, site-specific play. Through its omissions and concentrations it offers new points of entry to an epic of Ireland’s pasts and the heart’s perennial struggles.
