Hailed by WTTW Theatre Critic, Hedy Weiss, as hauntingly beautiful, “...a breath- taking play about time, love, regret and fateful decisions, Bloomsday is a nostalgic look at what would happen if you could go back in time to talk to your younger self. The story is about Robert and Cait:
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 retraces their steps to dis- cover their younger selves. Through youthful Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them-–only briefly--together. This time-traveling love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it becomes the past.
