A new play about James Joyce & his daughter Lucia Joyce. 

Lucia Joyce and her father James are roused from death by an eloquent clown.

The duo’s joyful reunion soon gives way told quarrels, as they debate the reasons why Lucia spent nearly half a century in psychiatric hospitals. Clown, who holds the power to alter the past, presents James with a dilemma.

Will he erase his own literary legacy to afford Lucia a second chance in life, or will he keep things as they were?

This funny and moving play pits personal ambition against love of family, all the while challenging prevailing notions about its protagonists: Lucia as the mad daughter, and James as the genius father who did all he could to save her.

This is a co-production between Smashing Times International Centre for the Arts and Equality and The New Theatre, presented as part of Theatre in Palm’s Theatre Roadshow.

Performances take place 11-15 June 2024, 7.30-8.30pm
