Created & Performed by Darina Gallagher and Sinead Murphy
A wonderful new Joycean musical, ‘Misses Liffey’ gives us an insight into the female voices within Joyce’s writing and a picture of Dublin in full song from the comic ballad, folk song, music hall, opera and sea shanties.
Anna Livia Plurabelle, the female personification of the River Liffey, brings us on her journey from little cloud, through the city of Dublin and out into Dublin Bay. Anna introduces us to many of Joyce’s women that live, work, sing, long and laugh along her banks. We hear from Nuvoletta and the Washerwomen in Finnegan’s Wake, the Morkan Sisters and Eveline from Dubliners and the siren barmaids and the seaside girls in Ulysses. The river finally bids us farewell as she meets her cold, mad father – the sea, only to fin again, begin again.
