The Dead


Don't miss the musical version of a profound story by the greatest writer of the 20th Century, James Joyce. The Dead wrestles with themes of lost love and life’s meaning. At an annual Christmas party, Gretta swoons when a renowned tenor sings. Her husband Gabriel feels lustful watching her. But he's devastated to learn she was actually moved by the memory of her first love, who died hopelessly obsessed with her. Realizing his marriage lack such passion, Gabriel feels alone. Mortal. Lifeless. Gabriel feels like a shadow of a person—flickering in a world where the living and ‘the dead’ converge. Don’t miss this poignant tale based on the greatest story in Joyce's acclaimed collection, Dubliners.
