The Performance Corporation & Breda Cashe Presents

The Dead

An award-winning drama with music based on James Joyce's best loved short story.

Following a sold-out run at Dublin's Project Arts Centre, this acclaimed version of The Dead is on national tour.
Four singers accompanied by a string quartet conjure all the humour and heartbreak of a family gathering on a snowy night in Dublin. Composer Ellen Cranitch and playwright Tom Swift have created a vivid musical telling of one of the greatest short stories ever written.
Presented by The Performance Corporation and Breda Cashe, The Dead is skilfully directed by Jo Mangan, in a beautiful version of Joyce's masterpiece.
