A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Arthur Riordan from James Joyce

Published by Methuen

Large Mixed Cast
The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression is brought to life in this thrilling theatrical adaptation

Based upon James Joyce's novel of the same name, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a reworking of the classic coming-of-age story

Charting Stephen's transformation into a man, we follow him through the major milestones and stumbling blocks of his life: his school days, his first romance, his loss of faith and finally to his initiation into the world of writing

In Arthur Riordan's witty and poignant adaptation of 'Joyce's manifesto', A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man challenges perceptions of family, homeland, and the Catholic Church

This edition of the adaptation was published to coincide with Rough Magic's world premiere of the production at the Dublin Theatre Festival in autumn 2018
