It’s famous! Yet most of us have never read it. It’s BIG! So how am I ever going to get around to reading that?? It’s…steamy! Okay, go on…

Arís proudly presents “Ulysses” by Dermot Bolger. The big, famous, steamy novel comes to life on stage as only Arís can do. Come along with Leopold Bloom as he walks the streets of Dublin, encountering the challenges and trials worthy of an ancient epic:

Life. Death. Love. Sex.

All in a single day. All in a single show.

This is the U.S. premiere of this wonderful work, and if you’ve ever picked up Ulysses or not, you’re going to have a good time at this one.

Say YES!

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring the theatrical and literary traditions, mythology, and storytelling from and about Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England to Atlanta. Aris presents full productions and staged readings of contemporary and classical plays. We celebrate annual events such as Burns Night and Bloomsday. We participate in other events that feature the literature, poetry, and music of the British Isles. Aris is committed to breathing fresh life into timeless classics as well as introducing our audience to the work of new and emerging contemporary playwrights.
