Dramatic take on trial that opened the US to Ulysses

A bawdy courtroom drama, telling the true story of the 1933 New York trial that liberated James Joyce’s Ulysses from American censors and made the Irish author a household name in that country, will be staged at Galway’s Town Hall Theatre next Tuesday, November 21, at 8pm.

The United States Vs Ulysses, by Colin Murphy comes to Galway following a four-night run at Dún Laoghaire’s Pavilion Theatre. A joint production between the playwright and Once Off Productions, it’s being presented in association with the Pavilion, where it received a rehearsed reading as part of Bloomsday 2022.
