Joyce’s Women
written by Edna O’Brien

A co-production between the Abbey Theatre and Eilene Davidson Productions
Written by Edna O’Brien and directed by Conall Morrison

“James Joyce had been my ultimate hero for sixty years, but to paint the canvas of his life was daunting. Therefore I decided to depict him as seen by the key figures in his life- Mother, Wife, Mistress of a fleeting moment, his patron Harriet Weaver and his beloved Daughter Lucia, of whom he said her mind was but a transparent leaf away from his.” – Edna O’Brien

One of Ireland’s greatest contemporary writers turns her attention to the life of one of the country’s greatest novelists, in a powerful new play Joyce’s Women.

Written for the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Ulysses, this world premiere from Edna O’Brien gives voice to the women who were central to the life of James Joyce.
