A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Summary

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce

The spiritual rebellion of Stephen Dedalus and his restless search for self-expression is brought to life in a thrilling theatrical adaptation by Arthur Riordan. 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.
