AFTER SUCCESSFUL performances in the Galway Theatre Festival, Inis Oírr, and at the Bloomsday celebrations in the Ibsen Museum, Oslo, Tara Breathnach’s Molly returns to Galway.

The IFTA nominate Galway actor's one woman show, stage adaptation of James Joyce’s final soliloquy in Ulysses, will be performed in the Town Hall Theatre studio from October 12 to 14.

In the middle of the night, as Molly Bloom lies awake, plagued by insomnia, wind, and her husband’s snoring, she reflects on life’s ups and downs, mixing caustic wit with searing honesty. Joyce based the character of Molly on his wife, Galwegian Nora Barnacle. Tara believes Molly’s observations on relationships strike a chord with contemporary audiences and her unashamed sexuality is startlingly modern. "It is refreshing in this age of bodyshaming to encounter a woman who is at one with her body and physicality," she says.
