The Dead – Special Screening and Meal
The Black Box
Sunday 6 January, 7.30pm
On the feast of the Epiphany, we invite you to join us for a sumptuous screening of John Huston’s classic adaption of the James Joyce masterpiece, complete with a Joycean meal of Goose, Blancmange, toasted almonds and sherry.
Anjelica Huston is top-billed as Gretta Conroy, the niece by marriage of turn-of-century Irish spinsters Kate Morkan (Helena Carroll) and Julia Morkan (Cathleen Delany). At the home of these two curious ladies, Gretta is prodded into remembering her longdead lover.
She tearfully reveals to her husband (Donal McCann) that the deceased boy may well have died on her behalf. The Dead is a subtle fable of a supposition about humanity: that despite all our surface trappings of tradition, pleasant company, intellectualism, and comforts, in reality all that is truly important is totally out of our control. Our loves, our creative ability, and even life itself, must finally pass.
During an interval in the film, food will be served to the accompaniment of music from the film’s period.
