    Synopsis: 

    The Dead,1904 is a new adaptation in which an audience of 40 guests will themselves attend the Misses Morkan’s holiday party, move from room to room with the actors, listen to the music, watch the dances, dine on a meal inspired by the menu in the novella, and observe the characters in their interactions. The production will take place in an authentic Victorian mansion, perfectly evoking the atmosphere of the story.

    At each performance, premium ticket holders will be seated with the actors, to truly experience the famous dinner scene from within. Special New Year’s Eve and Feast of the Epiphany performances will provide an extraordinary special observance of these holidays.

    This exquisite theatrical recreation of James Joyce’s haunting story is likely to be one of the most sought after theater events of New York’s 2016 holiday season.

    ‘The Dead, 1904’ Brings Existential Unease to the Party

    Charles Isherwood

    December 8, 2016: For a theatrical evening with a gloomy title, “The Dead, 1904,” based on the celebrated James Joyce story (absent the date, of course), makes for an unusually sparkling affair. Unless you glide among the upper echelons of New York society, you are not likely to attend a holiday gathering in a more sumptuous setting this season. This immersive theatrical adaptation of Joyce’s story is presented at the American Irish Historical Society, on a splendid stretch of Fifth Avenue near the Metropolitan Museum. (The Irish Repertory Theater production is presented by the society in association with Dot Dot Productions.) The building, originally a private residence from 1900, is a grand one. The rooms on the second floor, in which most of the action occurs, are lit by chandeliers that shed mellow golden light on intricately molded wood and plaster. (Perhaps grander than the rooms in the story, but who’s complaining?)
