Get a behind-the-scenes look at Dubliners: A Quartet, a newly commissioned audio play written by award-winning playwright Arthur Yorinks on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of James Joyce’s short story collection, Dubliners.
“There is a connective tissue between all of Joyce’s Dubliners stories, and the poetic echoes in the four I’ve chosen recall a suite in four movements,” says Yorinks, who is also co-directing. “Music is an indelible part of Irish culture and it naturally runs through these stories like threads in a tapestry.
Watch as Yorinks; co-director Jim Simpson, artistic director of The Flea Theater; and musical director Edward Barnes, producing director of The Collegiate Chorale, discuss Joyce’s works and the audio play in progress.
