Play: Dead City
September 27 – October 13, 2018
By Sheila Callaghan
Directed by Jonathan Cole
Samantha Blossom, a chipper woman in her 40s, wakes in her Upper East Side apartment one June morning to find her life being narrated over public radio. So begins this
90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses, occurring exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.
Dead City is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
