Splodar Theatre presents Young Stephen, an adaption of Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce. Adapted and directed by Prin Duignan and performed by Patrick McEneaney.

Young Stephen examines the early life of Stephen Dedalus from Joyce’s semiautobiographical novel.

Stephen’s young and idyllic life is turned around as he spends his first term at boarding school. We follow Stephen from isolation and loneliness to a new sense of freedom.

On his return home he finds a household torn down the middle due to the political turmoil caused by the fallout from the revelation of Charles Stewart Parnell’s affair with Kitty O’Shea.

McEneaney’s highly energetic performance expertly weaves through the characters and stories of young Stephen’s formative years.
