Dead City
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Dead City by Sheila Callaghan. 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.
