Molly Bloom

Jan Lauwers - Needcompany - Viviane De Muynck
On-site Icona

The famous final monologue in Joyce’s Ulysses reinterpreted by the extraordinary actress and muse of Flemish avant-garde Viviane De Muynck

Molly Bloom is a long anticipated show. In 1999 Jan Lauwers and Viviane De Muynck first became interested in the famous monologue that ends James Joyce’s Ulysses. They were unable to obtain permission from his family and waited for the copyright to expire before continuing with the project. Every great actress longs to perform this piece in their careers, a literary and theatrical delight that truly takes flight in the hands of Viviane De Muynck, the great leading light of Belgian theatre. The reviews commented that it was very difficult to see where the actress ended and the character began
