Buried in the heart of a complex book lies a simple love story, the story of Leopold and Molly Bloom.
Haunted by the death of a son and incapacitated by the havoc that loss has wrought on their relationship, they’re treading water. Bloom’s solution – Let Molly take a lover – Then she’ll appreciate Bloom more – She’ll tell him all about it – And thus they’ll recover their lost language of love. He embarks on his Odyssey around Dublin knowing full well that Molly is going to have an affair that afternoon. Can this gambit work? We wander far and wide with our unconquered hero until day turns to night and Bloom returns home to the comfort of his bed and sleep. Then Molly awakens. And has the last word. Yes ...

What the Critics are Saying...

"demonstrates the play’s fidelity to the book’s candor...the language sings." -NY Times

"Joyce revelled in the juxtaposition between the sacred with the sensual (and to some ears, the obscene). In “Gibraltar,” we do as well." -New York Times 

"Gibraltar feels like leafing through a well-loved book, rereading only the favorite bits."
-Time Out

"the production conveys a bittersweet ambience and a powerful sense of another time and place" -Epoch Times

"two knockout performances by Fitzgerald and Cara Seymour...It's a real tour-de force" -Huffington Post

"an evocative telling of a classic" -NYPost

"a heart-felt romantic romp" -CurtainUp
