A Play in Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of
The James Joyce Society

The play introduces Finnegans Wake in a playful rather than didactic manner.  Accordingly, while the script utilizes actual text from the book, it twists, revises and rearranges it, puts words into the mouths of those who never said them and generally biolates times and sequences -- to capture a Joycean mood while making Finnegans Wake more accessible.
