A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man [9781350096820]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression is brought to life in a thrilling theatrical adaptation by Arthur Riordan. Based upon James Joyce's novel of the same name, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a reworking of the classic coming-of-age story. Charting Stephen's transformation into a man, we follow him through the major milestones and stumbling blocks of his life: his school days, his first romance, his loss of faith and finally to his initiation into the world of writing. In Arthur Riordan's witty and poignant adaptation of 'Joyce's manifesto', A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man challenges perceptions of family, homeland, and the Catholic Church. This edition of the adaptation was published to coincide with Rough Magic's world premiere of the production at the Dublin Theatre Festival in autumn 2018.
AUTHOR: Arthur Riordan is a playwright, actor and founding member of Rough Magic Theatre Company. His plays include: The Train which premiered at the Dublin Theatre Festival and was revived at the Abbey Theatre in April 2017; Slattery's Sago Saga, 2010; Peer Gynt, 2011; Improbable Frequency, 2004; and Shooting Gallery, 2006. His radio plays include Love Me?! and Lot's Mother-in-Law.
