Ulysses for Children?
Yes, Ulysses for Children.

Branar, one of Ireland’s leading theatre companies for children, have adapted James Joyce’s epic novel, Ulysses, for schools and families across the country.

James Joyce’s epic story of one day in one city is brought to life in film, bringing Ireland’s most notorious book to audiences aged 8 and upwards, and to all those who haven’t got around to reading it yet.

On 16 June 2022, children throughout Ireland are invited to take part in MyBloomsday to celebrate and tell us about their Bloomsday, 100 years on from the book’s original publication date.
