A new play entitled “Gibraltar,” adapted from Ulysses for the stage by Patrick Fitzgerald and performed at the Bowery Electric in New York City, began its run on Monday, Oct. 11, and will continue until Nov. 29. Each Monday at 7 PM, Fitzgerald’s two-person 90-minute production depicts the interactions between and story of Leopold and Molly Bloom. Bloom is played by Fitzgerald, who was seen most recently in the Irish Repertory Theater’s production of W.B. Yeat’s plays, and British-born actress Cara Seymour plays Molly Bloom. Reviewers state that Fitzgerald’s production “greatly enhance[s] the cohesiveness of James Joyce’s masterpiece.” Additionally, Fitzgerald claims to have discovered new insights about Ulysses and Molly’s final soliloquy, which he enthusiastically announces at the end of this article.
“Gibraltar” will be performed on Mondays, Oct. 11, 18 & 25, and Nov. 15, 22 & 29. For ticket prices and location of the Bowery Electric, please visit the Bowery Electric’s webpage.
