B&CG at Bayview Park. Corner of Virginia and Pearl Street. A James Joyce professor journeys to Dublin to find his “almost love of a lifetime” from 35 years ago. A shift in time provides him more than just an opportunity to reminisce. If you could go back, would you?

Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour thirty-five years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retrace their steps to discover their younger selves. Through young Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them—only briefly—together. This Irish time-travel love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past. "With intricate cleverness, Dietz evokes, mocks, paraphrases and cannily integrates aspects of Joyce’s Ulysses into BLOOMSDAY…And Joyce’s manipulations of time and space, subject and object…ingeniously inform the script.” —Seattle Times
