Wonderland Theatre 2003-2009
Wonderland Productions proudly presents
by James Joyce
adapted by Alice Coghlan
In 1914 the epiphany that awoke the world's imagination to the battered yet tumultuous city of Dublin, her streets, and her people, was a modest book of short stories that would become a defining Irish classic, James Joyce's Dubliners.

Wonderland Productions' Dubliners is a self-guided audio-walking tour on headphones that invites you to tour the streets and historic buildings in which Joyce set his classic stories, whilst you listen to his stories in situ, as they are told and performed for you on headphones by a large ensemble cast led by the celebrated Joycean actor Barry McGovern.

What our audiences say:

"I've lived here all my life but today I saw my city with new eyes, as Joyce's Dublin came to life in the streets all around me"

"Evocative, atmospheric and wonderfully emotional. Sitting at the candlelit dining table... with the ghosts of Joyce's characters hovering all around me... I almost felt I could see their faces"

Dubliners on the stairs

What the critics say:

"I'm transported to a different world. Flickering all around me, in this other universe, are the sounds of James Joyce's Dublin, from church bells to Victorian parlour songs. And inside my head are the rhythms and cadences of Joyce's Dubliners.... you're listening to beautifully written, beautifully performed stories through headphones... Layers of history peel away from buildings as you pass.
The overwhelming impression left by this tour is one of pulsating life. It's a joyous celebration not just of Joyce but of parts of Dublin that many natives, never mind tourists, rarely see...Joyce would love it." - Arminta Wallace, Irish Times.

"...a terrific idea, well executed."
- Sara Keating, Sunday Business Post

"If there's any justice, this invigorating tour will become just as essential as the book that inspired it" - Daragh Reddin, Metro Herald

"The tour is extremely impressive... A tiny little mp3 player holds some beautiful recordings of these fabulous stories. Slipping on your headphones and heading out onto these historical streets, you are immersed deep into each story..."
- Kate O'Connor,QualityWaffle.ie

"a quality piece of work, and a real addition to the city's Joycean scene. Both as a way to see Dublin with fresh eyes and as an enjoyable recounting of the stories from Dubliners, this is a winner."
- Dave Madden, DublinCulture.ie

"walking the streets of Joyce's Dublin has a transporting effect that stays with you.... I can't think of a much better way to celebrate this monumental year for James Joyce, or indeed to spend a sunny Saturday in our fair city." - Entertainment.ie
